Direct medical costs related to COVID-19 in Colombia
Artículo de revista
We studied 113 patients hospitalized by COVID-19, 51.3% men. On average, the hospital length of stay for COVID-19 hospitalized patient was 7,3 (± 6,2) days with a median cost of $1,688 (IQR 788-2,523). In women, the median direct medical cost of hospitalization was $1,328 (IQR $463-$2,098), while in men was 1.4 times greater. Being 60 years of age or older triggers hospitalization costs almost twice as high as those under this age ($1,813 vs. $2,994), and when the cost is compared by type of hospitalization, this difference is more than three times (ICU: 4,118; general ward: $1,312).
