This is shocking: half of our nations seniors have prediabetes and are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.One in three Medicare dollars is spent on someone with diabetes, and without action this spending will grow enormously in the years to come.
But you can make a difference right now.
November is American Diabetes Month and now is the time to make your voice heard. The Medicare Diabetes Prevention Act (S. 962/H.R. 452) will save an estimated $1.3 billion over 10 years in diabetes related medical costs by providing seniors with coverage for the National Diabetes Prevention Program. This proven, low cost program will prevent diabetes and its complications and extend the lives of those we love.
Tell your Members of Congress to support the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Act!
Like I said our nations seniors deserve better than a life filled with complications from diabetes. If Congress passes the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Act, we can save lives.
Please take just one minute to take action. Tell your Members of Congress to support the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Act today!
Thank you for all you do to Stop Diabetes.
