pre-sick
 adj.— «The underlying concept is that once patients have chronic conditions and enter disease management programs, they are already quite sick and inevitably will be costly patients. Better to identify and help the “pre-sick” patient before they have chronic problems.» —“UM, Humana to test ‘pre-sick’” by John Dorschner Miami Herald (Florida) May 26, 2005.
