Via SFGate.com: A new study by selfhealthinsurance.com, a price quote site, says Washington, D.C. spends more on insurance than other cities. It also “shows that larger, more populated cities tend to have higher health care costs. The three largest metropolitan areas of the United States: New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, are all on the top ten list for highest amount spent on health insurance. SelfHealthInsurance.com says that a major reason big cities spend a lot on health care is because of the first-rate medical care offered in these cities. Because the best hospitals are located in major metropolitan areas, people with serious illness and rare diseases flock to these medical centers for treatment.”
