What claims from 150,000 Cigna members reveal about common diagnoses post-COVID-19

Listen

A new study from Cigna found headaches, migraines and chronic respiratory issues are some of the most common health diagnoses its members are reporting after recovering from COVID-19. 

For its analysis, Cigna studied claims from 150,000 commercial members who were diagnosed with COVID-19 from April to June 2020. In addition to revealing the most common diagnoses among customers who had recovered from COVID-19, the data showed more than a third of those who reported new health conditions already had pre-existing conditions like hypertension and diabetes.

Here are the five most common long-term, post-COVID-19 complications Cigna found:

1. Nervous system (headache/migraine, stroke and seizures)
2. Chronic respiratory conditions
3. Heart disease
4. Mental health disorders
5. Renal/urinary conditions
