OKLAHOMA CITY – It’s something that most Americans don’t think about until they absolutely need it.

While more Americans have access to health care, cost and quality vary by state.

WalletHub decided to compare the 50 states and the District of Columbia to find out which states have the best healthcare.

The top 10 areas with the best healthcare are as follows:

  1. Minnesota
  2. Maryland
  3. South Dakota
  4. Iowa
  5. Utah
  6. Kansas
  7. Hawaii
  8. Vermont
  9. District of Columbia
  10. Nebraska.

Oklahoma came in at No. 44.

When analyzing health care costs, Oklahoma was 14th but fell to 33rd when considering health care access.

However, the Sooner State’s ‘health outcomes’ was one of the worst at No. 47.

In fact, Oklahoma also had the third highest infant mortality rate in the country.
