Connecticut expensive healthcare

We know that our country pays more for worse health outcomes than most comparable nations, however, do we know which state is most expensive? Well I was surprised to learn Connecticut is among the most expensive states in which to receive health care. 

According to statistics from the Kaiser Family Foundation, Connecticut spends $12,500 per person on health care versus the national average of around $10,000.  This is not a get what you pay for scenario.  Paying more does not drive longer lives or better quality of life.  Higher cost does not translate to better outcomes.  There are a number of reasons that drive the cost from in-patient and out-patient to pharmacy costs.
