The Worst States for Health Care in the US: 2023


Get a quick look at the US worst states for health care ranked using a composite score that included measures of cost, access, and outcomes.

Health care in the US can be expensive, however, high medical costs do not always translate to better results. According to research from the Kaiser Family Foundation, the US falls behind several other wealthy nations on health coverage, life expectancy, and disease burden.

Health care conditions are not the same across the US, which is why a recent WalletHub study examined in which states Americans are more likely to get the worst health care. The study compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 44 measures of cost, accessibility, and outcome. Considered were factors including hospital beds and physicians per capita, share of insured adults and children, cancer incidence rate, and more.
