From the Commonwealth Fund:
The first-ever health system performance scorecard focusing on low-income Americans has one overriding message: where you live matters.
The new Commonwealth Fund report Health Care in the Two Americas, along with the accompanying interactive map,provides the first state-by-state comparison of the health care experiences of the 39 percent of Americans earning less than twice the federal poverty level ($47,000 a year for a family of four or $23,000 for an individual). It finds that access to affordable health care and quality of care vary greatly depending on the state. In comparing the care experiences of low-income populations with higher-income groups, the report also finds striking income-related differences within each state.
