It’s a question that America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) asked in a recent survey that the Locust Street Group completed on behalf of AHIP Coverage@Work.
According to the study: “The vast majority (75%) report that their coverage was important to maintaining the health and financial security of them and their families during the pandemic, with 71% reporting their plan helped access services like free testing, vaccination, and telehealth appointments.”
The study also showed long-term support for telehealth:
- 3 in 4 consumers (75%) report they’re likely to consider being seen by a doctor or treated via telehealth if it’s an option
- 76% of respondents consider it important for plans to cover telehealth services
- 79% believe it’s important for the federal government to maintain COVID-19 telehealth flexibilities for patients
