COVID Research Using Medicare Patient Data

In the early days of the pandemic, isolated reports suggested beneficial or harmful effects of some maintenance drugs for chronic diseases (e.g., hypertension, hyperlipidemia) on the outcome of COVID-19. Using Medicare claims data, we used extended Cox regression to study the association between 8 common maintenance drugs/drug classes and the susceptibility to and severity of COVID-19. In another ongoing study, we estimated the incidence and healthcare impact of long COVID in Medicare patients.
