Research organization Altarum released its Healthcare Affordability State Policy Scorecard to rank the states that provide the most affordable healthcare options.

Altarum used a custom data set to determine affordability. The company based its ranking on four metrics:

How states extended affordable coverage to all residents
How states made cost-sharing affordable and evidence-based
How states reduced the provision of low- and no-value care
How states curbed excess healthcare prices

Here are the 10 states with the most affordable healthcare:

  1. Massachusetts
  2. Maryland
  3. Oregon
  4. Minnesota
  5. New York
  6. California
  7. Washington
  8. Rhode Island
  9. Maine
  10. Connecticut
