Prevention, early detection and routine care are fundamental components of chronic disease management. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of people being identified with and seeking care for chronic conditions has declined alongside a decrease in routine care and emergency department visits. Emerging data highlights the impacts of delayed care on long-term health and health care systems, and the increased risk of severe outcomes from COVID-19 among those with chronic conditions. We invite you to join NCSL for a discussion with national experts about chronic disease management during COVID-19 and an overview of related state actions.
