PR Newswire: Fifth Annual FAIR Health Report Captures Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Healthcare System
According to a recent FAIR Health report, telehealth utilization grew nationally by 7,060 percent from 2019 to 2020, an increase driven by the COVID-19 pandemic and the limits imposed on certain in-office services, coupled with the greater risk of infection from in-person encounters. Telehealth held the highest percentage of medical claim lines in 2020, with 15.41 percent of all medical claim lines nationally. This demonstrates telehealth’s impact from the COVID-19 pandemic on the nation’s health care system.
