CSG RELEASES REPORT ON STATE DIABETES SPENDING

The number of adults with diagnosed diabetes increased nearly five-fold in the U.S. between 1980 and 2015. Diabetes costs are estimated at over $160 billion every year for medical treatment, and through indirect costs due to lost productivity, unemployment due to chronic disability, and premature mortality.
The new report will be formally released at the 2017 CSG National Conference in Las Vegas, but is available now on the CSG website by following the link below.
