California Healthline

California’s health care system performs well across many areas, including care management, overall costs and cost trends. Our state’s consistently lower levels of utilization have been a major driver of lower per capita health care costs. For every major measure of hospital utilization, care provided in California’s hospitals ranks among the most efficient in the nation. As a result, California’s average per capita spending is well below the national average, despite a significantly higher cost of doing business in the state.
