Primary care physicians could take $15 billion hit due to COVID-19 in 2020
JUNE 30, 2020
Dive Brief: The financial impact on primary care practices due to the COVID-19 pandemic has been profound and will likely continue in the months ahead, according to a new study published in Health Affairs. Visits of all types to medical practices declined 58% in March and April compared to the baseline average, and in-person patient encounters declined by 69%, the study found. That’s a steep enough loss to threaten the financial viability of many practices.
