ABSTRACT

Healthcare Professionals and the Impact of COVID-19: A Comparative Study of Revenue and Utilization   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Summary: "This brief reports on FAIR Health's in-depth study of the impact of the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic on healthcare professionals' utilization and revenue, an impact that has not previously been assessed in depth. It also looks at how the impact varies by specialty. To study these issues, FAIR Health drew on its repository of private claims data to analyze, on a monthly basis, changes in utilization and estimated allowed amounts for professionals in the first four months of 2020 as compared to 2019. The changes nationwide are compared to the changes in the Northeast, where the pandemic hit hardest in March and April. The second part of the study focuses on seven specialties: cardiology, dermatology, oral surgery, gastroenterology, orthopedics, pediatric primary care and adult primary care. For each specialty, FAIR Health analyzed changes in utilization and estimated allowed amounts in the first four months of 2020 as compared to 2019, as well as changes in the five most common procedures in the first four months of 2020."
