Self-Management is Proven to Improve Health, Reduce Health Care Costs

Each program is evidence-based. Some are modeled on the Stanford Chronic Disease Self-Management Programs, programs whose completers experience improved health and wellbeing including fewer days in the hospital.

The Y Diabetes Prevention Program helps people at-risk for Diabetes improve or maintain their health while reducing Medicare spending. The study showed savings of about $2,650 per participant over 15 months. Based on these results, the federal government added the Y Diabetes Prevention Program to Medicare – making it the first preventative service model expanded into the Medicare program under the Affordable Care Act.
