KnowDiabetes® Health Insurance
People with diabetes represent some of the highest
annual healthcare cost in Australia. Average annual
healthcare cost per person with diabetes is $4,025 and
can rise to as much as $9,645 with associated complications.
(Diabetes: the silent pandemic and its impact on Australia – Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute 2012)
Structured diabetes care result in sustained improvements in health outcomes, reduced use of hospital services and mortality for people with Type II Diabetes
(Lowe et al 2009).
The total annual economic cost of diabetes in Australia has been estimated at $14.6 billion.
Annual health costs are more than twice as high for people with diabetes complications as for people without complications.
If diabetes education was available for the entire population of people with diabetes in Australia, the total averted burden could be around $6.1 billion per annum
Improved care and management of people with diabetes can substantially reduce the economic burden of diabetes.
KnowDiabetes programs and services delivered by qualified diabetes experts aim to improve health outcomes for people living with diabetes, leading to reductions in healthcare costs.
