From Blue Cross Blue Shield, a report titled the Impact of Caregiving on Mental and Physical Health:
“This report examines the health impact* associated with caregiving among the Blue Cross and Blue Shield (BCBS) commercially insured population. Using our market-leading claims database, we find that caregiving is associated with higher rates of both physical and behavioral health conditions for caregivers—particularly for millennials and members of communities with a majority Black or Hispanic population. This effect is further exacerbated by the recent coronavirus pandemic.”
