Health Care is a pretty big discussion and topic for debate among the public and politicians in the Cowboy State, but has the skinny on where we stand on this.

Our friends at recently conducted a survey of best and worst states for health care. Some think that because the cost is higher that it must be better. Not so, according to the study.

The survey was based on a few different metrics. Health Care access, health care costs and health care outcomes. Here are the top 5 best states for health care and the 5 worst states for health care in the U.S.
