New NYSIF Report: Long Covid

“New York state Insurance Fund has released a report [Shining A Light on Long Covid: an Analysis of Workers Compensation Data] analyzing its Covid-19 workers’ compensation claims to shine a light on Long Covid, a multifaceted syndrome causing new, returning, or ongoing symptoms in people after their initial infection. “As a large insurer with a public purpose, NYSIF is uniquely positioned to leverage its data to inform the broader conversation on Long Covid, including its ongoing, cascading, and yet-unclear implications for employers and the workforce,” said NYSIF Executive Director and CEO Gaurav Vasisht. An article by the New York Times, published January 24, 2023, further quoted Mr. Vasisht: “The longer you’re out of work, the harder it is for you to get back to work, and that can stigmatize patients. It could be highly disruptive to their family and professional lives.”
