    Continuation of Routine Screenings, Care Is Crucial During COVID-19 Pandemic

    Routine preventive screenings and vaccination rates have decreased due to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, while the Director of the National Cancer Institute recently warned delays in cancer screenings are likely to result in thousands of excess deaths. At the same time, a recent study found the pandemic could create losses of up to $15 billion for primary care practices.

    To find out what can be done about these setbacks, and to learn why it is so critical to continue screenings during the pandemic, we spoke with Andrea Gelzer, MD, senior vice president and corporate chief medical officer for AmeriHealth Caritas.

    On this episode of Managed Care Cast, Dr. Gelzer discusses the vital role telehealth has played during the pandemic, and how providers and payers can work together to encourage patients to continue routine care.
