The article by Mary E. Stuart on the financing and care of diabetes in Maryland describes a program that effectively encourages state funding of preventive health services for people with diabetes. Stuart links the ability to obtain future third-party reimbursement for preventive services in part to the findings and potential impact of the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT). Perhaps more valuable, however, is the insight that she offers into scenarios that encourage changes in health care delivery and influence policy developments.
