In March 2022, telehealth utilization, as measured by telehealth’s share of all medical claim lines, fell nationally for the second straight month, according to FAIR Health’s Monthly Telehealth Regional Tracker.[1] Following a drop of 9.3 % in February, telehealth utilization decreased 6.1 % in March, declining from 4.9 % of all medical claim lines in February to 4.6 % in March (FIGURE 1). Telehealth utilization also decreased in February in every US census region (Midwest, Northeast, South and West), with the greatest decrease (8.1 %) in the South, followed closely by the West (7.8 %). The data represent the privately insured population, including Medicare Advantage and excluding Medicare Fee-for-Service and Medicaid.
