Wednesday, 18 September 2013 04:35 Published in Local News

   A new report gives both Missouri and Illinois poor marks for delivering health care services to low-income residents.  The Commonwealth Fund's scorecard was released Wednesday.  

   The report looks at 30 health indicators regarding health care coverage, prevention and treatment of low-income people  -- defined as 200-percent of the federal poverty level.  That's about $23,000 a year for an individual or $47,000 for a family of four.  

   According to the report, Missouri ranks 44th out of 51 states and DC.  Illinois does slightly better at 36th.  Hawaii ranked first among the states and Mississippi was last.

   The complete report, along with an interactive map, can be found on the Commonwealth Fund's website.
