The New York Times: Missed Vaccines, Skipped Colonoscopies: Preventive Care Plummets

HCCI's research on non-urgent medical care during the coronavirus pandemic was featured in The New York Times.  

From the article: 

"Vaccinations dropped by nearly 60 percent in April, and almost no one was getting a colonoscopy, according to new data from the nonprofit Health Care Cost Institute. The data, drawn from millions of health insurance claims, shows a consistent pattern, whether it was prostate screenings or contraceptives: Preventive care declined drastically this spring and, as of late June, had not yet recovered to normal levels. Many types of such care were still down by a third at the start of this summer, the most recent data available shows, as Americans remained wary of visiting hospitals and medical offices."
