Best and worst states for preventive care


Business Insider reports on a  new America’s Health Rankings report from the United Health Foundation that reports on the states with the best — and  worst — preventive care.
As usual with such reports, states in the North showed much better healthcare access — and health — than states in the South.

The group looked at three  areas:

  • Access to healthcare, measured by the percentage of adults who had healthcare coverage, annual dental visits and a personal physician.
  • Rates of immunizations among children, teens and adults.
  • Access to chronic-disease-prevention methods, measured by the percentage of adults who had  cholesterol checked,  a colorectal cancer screening, or were told they had high blood pressure.
