Florida health insurance

Sunshine State is ranked #33 in survey of state healthiness

florida guide to health insurance

How healthy is it living in Florida? The state ranked in the bottom half of all states, coming in at #33 in the 2013 edition of America’s Health Rankings® from the United Health Foundation.

Why Florida was ranked #33

The state’s health ranking is hurt by factors that include a high rate of drug deaths, low rate of high school graduation and a high percentage of uninsured citizens. The good news is that the high school graduation rate is improving and violent crime is continuing a 20-year decline.

For more details see the United Health Foundation’s latest findings on Florida.

Trust for America’s Health is another source for key Florida health quality findings.

In addition, 2010’s federal health reform, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), included the creation of a prevention fund to provide more than $16 billion over the next 10 years to invest in effective, proven prevention efforts, like childhood obesity prevention and tobacco cessation, and the site has a report on how it impacts Florida here.
