As the debate over how to fix the broken healthcare system in the US rages, have you ever wondered which states are the best, and which are the worst for healthcare?

For example, did you know that people who live in Texas are six times more likely to be without health insurance than residents of Massachusetts?  Or, that infant mortality rates are at least twice as high in 13 states than in Vermont, and Georgia has the worst rate of child immunization in the country?

WalletHub compared all 50 states and the District of Columbia across 43 different measures of healthcare cost, accessibility and outcomes. Some measures included average hospital expenses per inpatient day at community hospitals, physicians per capita, maternal mortality rate and heart disease rate.

Here is there results for the 10 best, and 10 worst states for healthcare.
