State Health Care Briefs 2009: Why Health Care Reform is Important

You will need the latest version of the free Adobe Acrobat Reader to open the pdf files found on this page.

 

This set of State Health Care Briefs provides a one-page overview of facts on health care data for each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Information is provided about each state’s older population, the uninsured, Medicare beneficiaries including those who fall into the “doughnut hole,” hospital re-admissions among Medicare beneficiaries, the distribution of Medicaid long-term care funds, and prescription drug spending.

Please note that in the prescription drug section of each brief, the data for the average number of prescriptions filled and the average cost of these prescriptions is based on 2006 data although it is from a 2007 report.
