A Game Plan for Older Adults to Prevent Diabetes

Diabetes is one of the most serious health issues facing older adults in Atlanta.

Among the Medicare population ages 65 or older living in Atlanta, it is estimated that more than 30,000 have undiagnosed diabetes and 80,000+ have prediabetes. Diabetes can often be prevented, and those found to have diabetes can take steps to control it—if they know they have it. The first step is to visit your health care provider or clinic and get screened.


For the first 200 adults age 65 or older that qualify, the program is free.

For adults age 65 or older, Medicare covers free diabetes screenings with no co-pay and no deductible.
