Chronic Disease Self-Management Cost Calculator Overview and Instructions

February 1, 2010

This manual provides instructions and an overview of the Chronic Disease Self-Management Cost Calculator.  The National Council on Aging (NCOA) sponsored The Lewin Group, Inc. (Lewin) to develop the Calculator to help organizations better understand and manage the costs of administering their Chronic Disease Self Management Programs (CDSMP). By entering your organization’s costs and CDSMP program data, you can use the Calculator to produce estimated “per participant” and “per workshop” costs, as well as evaluate the impact of individual program components on your total expenses. We encourage organizations to use this Calculator to deliver your programs in an efficient manner, and at a reasonable cost.
