Educate Don’t Amputate: Hospital Profits Versus Diabetes Prevention Study

Diabetes is the most singularly expensive disease. Nationally, it consumes $176 billion a year in health care dollars. In New York State diabetes costs $8.7 billion a year including $1.3 billion in annual Medicaid costs. This study provides insights and projections for both the medical savings and avoided burden of diabetes cases that would result from using a fraction of New York Metropolitan area “nonprofit” hospital profits to deliver the NDPP. With profits for the 25 largest Metropolitan area hospitals reported to be $1.43 billion, even 25% of those profits could fund evidence-based diabetes prevention for 357,000 pre-diabetics, thereby preventing 207,060 new diabetes cases!
