State Health Care Scorecard

A new State Health Care Scorecard finds deaths from suicide, alcohol and drugs are a regional epidemic and their impact varies widely across states.

According to the Commonwealth Fund’s 2019 Scorecard on State Health System Performance, states’ progress in expanding health care coverage stalls and rising health costs are a growing burden for working families.

The scorecard assesses all 50 states and the District of Columbia on 47 health care measures, covering access, quality, service use and costs of care, health outcomes, and income-based health care disparities. Arkansas, Nevada, Texas, Oklahoma, and Mississippi rank as the bottom five of the report.      MORE
