COVID-19, along with the growing number of aging baby boomers, have certainly accelerated the share of Medicare visits conducted through telehealth which grew from 840,000 in 2019 to 52.7 million in 2020, according to a December 2021 report from the US Department of Health & Human Services.
A recent study by McKinsey & Company confirms this trend, stating: “Up to US265 billion worth of care services for Medicare fee-for-service and Medicare Advantage patients could shift from traditional facilities to the home by 2025.”
