New Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program goes into effect April 1


The Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program (MDPP) starts April 1 for beneficiaries who have been diagnosed with prediabetes. And, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is looking for interested suppliers.

The program works to help prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes through structured sessions with a coach, using a curriculum approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The training includes dietary change, increased physical activity and weight loss strategies. Eligible Medicare beneficiaries can participate without a cost-share.

If you’re interested in being a program supplier, let us know by contacting your network relations account manager. Here’s an overview of the program.
