Want Good Health Care? Don't Move To These States

Viewing on Levo:

Only you can see this list

Health care is an absolute mess in our country right now. From shopping for a plan to finding doctors who take your insurance, it's easily the worst part of #adulting. That's exactly why we're paying close attention to WalletHub's latest report on health care in America--and which are the best states for your body and wallet.

According to the most recent estimates from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the average American spends about $10,000 per year on their health care. However, as WalletHub's report highlights, higher costs doesn't necessarily mean better quality care.

WalletHub analyzed 35 different aspects, including the cost of medical visits, the number of people who didn't go to the doctor because of money, ER wait time, etc. And the top spot is tropical, indeed: Hawaii nabbed the first spot. Iowa and Minnesota tied for second, followed by New Hampshire and the District of Columbia. Time to pack our bags.

As for the worst, the top was Louisiana, followed by Mississippi, Alaska, Arkansas, and North Carolina, which Shape points out is "eerily similar" to the list of America's most obese states.
