Raising a child in the U.S. has become almost unaffordable. It costs the average parent well over $230 million, according to the personal finance website WalletHub. WalletHub says health care is a huge percentage of that cost. Meanwhile, health care keep getting increasingly more expensive.

WalletHub took a look at which states offer the most cost-effective and highest-quality health care for children. Researchers reportedly compared all 50 states, including the District of Columbia, across 33 key metrics of cost, quality and access to children's health care.

When WalletHub put their findings together, only one New England state didn't make the top ten list of best states for children's health care. That state is Maine. The Pine Tree State came in at number 21. This is a shocker, because Maine is known for its excellent medical care.

Here are the top six:
1. Vermont
2. Massachusetts
3. Rhode Island
4. District of Columbia
5. Connecticut
6. New Hampshire
