Geography affecting price of healthcare

CNBC reports on how to shop for your own healthcare, including geography as a factor in price.

They said, “Location comes into play in all the health-insurance scenarios laid out above and can significantly impact a person’s monthly budget. Much like auto insurance, the state where one resides makes a difference because of risk and cost-of-living factors.

Depending on a person’s state and health condition, premiums can vary greatly, according to PCIP.gov. In North Carolina, for instance, the range for individuals is listed at $69 to $548 per month, while in New York monthly rates are $362 to $421.”
