With new health law, insurers target diabetics

With many consumers getting health insurance for the first time through the federal marketplace, insurers are finding creative ways to treat one of the most common diseases they're encountering, diabetes. Insurers are trying to quickly pinpoint new enrollees with diabetes and connect them with a doctor, diet plan and other disease management services. Before the Affordable Care Act, insurers could reject people with pre-existing conditions. But now insurers are required to take all comers and can't charge them extra, companies know that keeping consumers healthy will cost them less in the long run. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
