Percent Distribution of Diabetics and Non-Diabetics, by Supplementary Insurance Coverage: 2004Rates of employer-sponsored coverage, public insurance other than Medicaid, and Medicare Advantage are similar, as are the proportions that have no supplementary coverage (Medicare only). However, there are two notable differences: (1) non-diabetics are more likely to have self-purchased (Medigap) insurance and, (2) diabetics are much more likely to be covered by Medicaid. This leads to hypotheses about the socioeconomic disadvantages of the diabetic population.
