AS COVID-19 SPREAD across the nation from March to April 2020, use of telehealth services continued to grow.
That surge is shown by FAIR Health’s Monthly Telehealth Regional Tracker, which uses our database of over 31 billion private health care claim records – the largest such repository in the nation – to track the month-by-month evolution of telehealth.
According to the tracker, telehealth claim lines increased 8,336% nationally, from 0.15% of medical claim lines in April 2019 to 13% in April 2020. (A claim line is an individual service or procedure listed on an insurance claim.)
