Introduction to the chronic disease cost calculator

Introduction to the Chronic Disease Cost Calculator

Presented by Diane Orenstein, Ph.D., and Justin Trogdon, Ph.D.

April 1, 2010


Purpose of the cdcc 1 of 2

Purpose of the CDCC (1 of 2)

  • Estimate medical expenditures at the state level separately by insured population for the following select chronic diseases:

    • Arthritis

    • Asthma

    • Cancer

    • Cardiovascular disease (CVD), including

      • Congestive heart failure (CHF)

      • Coronary heart disease (CHD)

      • Hypertension

      • Stroke

      • Other CVD (including other cerebrovascular disease)

    • Depression

    • Diabetes

  • Estimates of medical expenditures are provided for the entire state population (all payers, including the uninsured) and separately for Medicaid, Medicare, and privately insured.


Purpose of the cdcc 2 of 2

Purpose of the CDCC (2 of 2)

  • Estimate absenteeism costs for the above chronic diseases at the state level.

  • Allow the user to generate estimates of the costs of selected chronic diseases using customized inputs.

  • Project estimates of the medical costs of selected chronic diseases in the near future.


Accessing the cdcc

Accessing the CDCC

  • Download Version 1 of the software at http://www.cdc.gov/nccdphp/resources/calculator.htm


What s new in version 2

What’s New in Version 2

  • Estimates of the prevalence and costs of Asthma, Arthritis and Depression

  • Expanded estimates of the medical costs from Medicaid only to Medicare, private insurance, and “all payers”

  • Estimates of absenteeism costs

  • Projections of future medical costs (10 years)

  • Charts


Intended audience

Intended Audience

  • Chronic disease directors

  • State Medicaid directors

  • Other state and federal policy and decision makers

  • Federal agencies and others interested in reviewing the burden of chronic disease across states and across the nation


Intended use

Intended Use

  • Provide estimates of medical expenditures and absenteeism costs due to select chronic diseases at the state level.

    • Many states do not have the resources (financial and personnel) to do this themselves

  • Help policymakers quantify and understand the financial impact caused by chronic diseases

  • Inform decisions on investments in chronic disease prevention and disease management programs

What the calculator does

What the Calculator Does

  • Estimates for arthritis, asthma, cancer, cardiovascular disease (CHF, CHD, hypertension, stroke, and other CVD), depression, and diabetes at the state level: 1) prevalence, 2) medical costs by payer, and 3) absenteeism costs

  • Minimizes double-counting of Medicaid dollars going to multiple diseases

  • Creates sound estimates with no additional data required

  • Allows users to input their own data in place of default estimates


What the calculator does not do

What the Calculator Does Not Do

  • Does not provide exact prevalence or medical and absenteeism costs of the chronic diseases for each state—only estimates

  • Not designed for comparisons across states

  • Does not include other costs of chronic disease, including productivity losses and reductions in the quality of life

  • Does not make policy or value judgments on spending for chronic disease


Next steps

Next Steps

  • Update source data (e.g., MEPS) through 2007, the most recent year available

  • Expected release—Summer 2010
