Healthcare Cost Trends and Challenges
Since the COVID-19 pandemic hit the United States, there’s been a dramatic impact on medical claims:

  • Prescription drug costs have largely been unaffected – spending continues to climb; and
  • Medical claims have dropped precipitously as provider groups closed or limited their practices. Most elective procedures were canceled or postponed.
