a The estimates for diabetes prevalence among Medicaid eligibles were derived by applying national diabetes prevalence estimates by age and race to the number of Medicaid eligibles by age and race. National diabetes prevalence estimates by age and race were compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the National Diabetes Fact Sheet, using data from: National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES III and NHANES 1999-2000), National Hospital Discharge Survey (NHDS), and surveys of the Behaviorial Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) among others. The Fact Sheet is available at: http://www.cdc.gov/diabetes/pubs/factsheet.htm.
b The costs are based on estimates from Hogan, Dall, Nikolov (2003) for people with diabetes age 0-64 ($6,059 per person) and those over age 64 ($9,922 per person). Because diabetes expenditures per capita are lower for younger age groups, this method probably underestimates the cost of diabetes for Medicaid recipients age 20 years and over.
