    @Justin: Medical billing is by procedure. The condition justifies the need for a procedure. Check any medical bill and you will see each item billed (code, name, condition). Hospitalized Covid-19 patients require more procedures than others (ICU, ventilators, drugs, longer periods of time). They are also more likely to be given different drugs off label to try to kill the virus like Remdesivir, treat immune system over response called cytokines storm, survivor plasma, anticoagulants like Eliquis for blood clots, etc - all expensive. https://www.medicalbillingandcoding.org/billing-process/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7102614/
