From the Commonwealth Fund...
COVID-19 took a huge toll on Americans’ health, directly and indirectly, but that toll varied dramatically by state.
Hawaii and Massachusetts top the 2022 State Scorecard rankings, based on overall performance across 56 measures of health care access and quality, service use and cost, health disparities, and health outcomes during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. The lowest-performing states were Mississippi, Oklahoma, and West Virginia.
The pandemic’s impact reverberated throughout the health system in every state, as health care use fell and deaths from drug overdoses and treatable causes rose.
Federal pandemic relief policies helped stabilize insurance coverage.
Opportunities exist to strengthen states’ insurance coverage and care delivery systems so they are better able to withstand future health emergencies.
