The Post-Intensive Care Syndrome and COVID-19: Crisis after a Crisis? study says, “At least 20% of the COVID-19 patients are reported to require supportive care in the critical care units. Patients infected with COVID-19 who are admitted to critical care often need 10 days of supportive care utilizing mechanical ventilation.”

Since workers’ compensation represents only between one and two percent of the overall medical spend, insurers, employers and third-party administrators will not see a huge number of COVID-19 claims with ICU treatment. However, the seriously ill workers they do see may suffer from post-intensive care syndrome or PICS.
