BHI COVID-19 Descriptive Analytics
While there have been many hypotheses about the impact of the coronavirus on healthcare costs and utilization, BHI’s analysis of paid medical and pharmacy claims from over 200 million commercially insured Americans offers substantiated proof of the latest healthcare trends.
BHI's most recent data brief (released December 2020) looks at COVID's impacts on preventive services and telehealth utilization through September 2020. Two of the findings are summarized here. Access the full study using the button below.
Utilization of Preventive Services Declined Significantly During 2020
Telehealth Utilization Increased 50- to 100-Fold
Conversely, the use of telehealth skyrocketed. BHI noted a 50-fold increase in the utilization of virtual healthcare services by commercially insured individuals from March 2019 to March 2020, and a 100-fold increase from April 2019 to April 2020. While telehealth utilization began to decline in late summer, the healthcare industry continues to prepare for a much larger reliance on virtual care options.
As fourth quarter 2020 claims data becomes available, BHI will continue to assess the impact of COVID-19 on preventive services and telehealth utilization. Examining these trends with the inclusion of data from the second wave of the pandemic will help to quantify the longer-term, lasting impact on population health and healthcare service delivery in the U.S.
