Latest Scorecard on State Health System Performance Shows More Improvement Than Decline Across States

States’ health care systems improved more than they declined, and access to care expanded across the nation, The Commonwealth Fund’s latest Scorecard on State Health System Performance finds.

The 2015 edition of the state scorecard—the first one in the series to reflect a full year of the Affordable Care Act’s health insurance expansions—finds that the uninsured rate for working-age adults declined in nearly all states and dropped by at least three points in 39 states. However, stark differences persisted among states on many other health system performance indicators.

Try our interactive tool to view and compare results for every state. And read the companion issue brief detailing state-by-state trends in access to health care: The Changing Landscape of Health Care Coverage and Access: Comparing States’ Progress in the ACA’s First Year.
