ABSTRACT

Detailed Study of Patients with Long-Haul COVID: An Analysis of Private Healthcare Claims   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Summary: "Many patients recover from COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] within a few weeks, but some exhibit persistent or new symptoms more than four weeks after first being diagnosed. Patients with such post-COVID conditions are variously referred to as having long-haul COVID, long COVID or post-acute sequelae of COVID-19 (PASC). Using longitudinal data from a database of over 34 billion private healthcare claim records, FAIR Health studied a total of 1,959,982 COVID-19 patients for the prevalence of post-COVID conditions 30 days or more after their initial diagnosis with COVID-19. To FAIR Health's knowledge, this is the largest population of COVID-19 patients so far studied for post-COVID conditions. The patients' post-COVID conditions were analyzed, with the most common conditions identified. Particular attention was given to age and gender, mental health conditions and death."
