The bullet points are that diabetes vendors claims credit for savings based on:
- Squirrelly “predictive modeling” of cost reductions that have not yet occurred
- Assuming employees pre-diabetes would almost immediately turn into high-cost diabetics absent their intervention
- Comparing participants to non-participants (why are vendors still pretending this is a thing?)
- Claiming that people are going to keep their weight off
This doesn’t cover their other sleight-of-hand, which is charging via claims instead of admin fees, and positioning that opacity as a feature rather than a bug.
