ABSTRACT

Delayed and Forgone Health Care for Children During the COVID-19 Pandemic   [open pdf - 553KB]

From the Document: "Since the pandemic began, health care providers and consumers have sought to minimize COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] transmission by limiting in-person visits. Consequently, many children are missing out on or having their health care delayed. Drawing on the Urban Institute's September 2020 Coronavirus Tracking Survey, we examine delayed and forgone health care for children during the pandemic because of parents' concerns about exposure to the coronavirus or limits on providers' services due to the coronavirus outbreak. We also show parent-reported impacts of delayed or forgone care for children on children's health, schooling, and other daily activities."
