With the Affordable Care Act remaining in effect and the CDC reporting that over 88 percent of the population has a regular place to go for medical care, the personal-finance website WalletHub, Monday released its report on 2018’s Best & Worst States for Health Care.
In order to determine where Americans receive the highest-quality services at the best prices, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 40 key measures of health care cost, accessibility and outcome. The data set ranges from average monthly insurance premium to physicians per capita to share of insured population.
Health Care in Iowa (1=Best; 25=Avg.):
- 12th – Hospital Beds per Capita
- 30th – Physicians per Capita
- 23rd – Dentists per Capita
- 24th – Physician Medicare-Acceptance Rate
- 6th – % of Insured Adults
- 8th – % of Insured Children
- 11th – % of Adults with No Dental Visit in Past Year
