CDC: Percentage of Adults Who Used Telemedicine in Past 12 Months

The CDC released data on the percentage of adults who used telemedicine by sex and health insurance coverage. Overall, in 2021, 35.3 percent of adults aged 18–64 years had a telemedicine visit with a health care professional in the past 12 months. The percentage was higher among women than men overall (41.7 percent versus 28.8 percent). Women were also more likely than men to have had a telemedicine visit among those with private health insurance (44.4 percent versus 30.5 percent), Medicaid or other public coverage (42.4 percent versus 34.3 percent), and those who were uninsured (19.5 percent versus 9.8 percent). Adults with private health insurance (37.5 percent) or Medicaid or other public coverage (39.3 percent) were more likely to use telemedicine compared with uninsured adults (14 percent), and this pattern was seen for women and men.
