Kids health
Raising a child in America is extremely expensive, costing the average parent over $230,000 and health care accounts for a big chunk of the bill. And while more kids are insured today than at any other point in history, the higher coverage rate hasnít translated into lower health costs for parents. Out of pocket costs for patients aged 0 to 18 increased by 18% between 2012 and 2016. But itís a different story in every state. WalletHub, a personal finance website, compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 30 key indicators of cost, quality and access to childrenís health care. Tennessee ranks 33rd. In the country for Children's health but 48th in the country in the category of Kids'Health and Access to Health Care category.
