Increasing Coverage for the National Diabetes Prevention Program Among Public and Private Insurers

Using County-Level Data to Increase Access to and Enrollment in the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program

Through the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program (MDPP), the National DPP lifestyle change program was expanded into Medicare to reduce type 2 diabetes among eligible Medicare beneficiaries with prediabetes. In this webinar, national maps and state-specific charts with county-level estimates of the number of MDPP-eligible Medicare Part B beneficiaries will be reviewed. MDPP resources from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will be demonstrated to determine where the MDPP is currently offered. A case study will be used to demonstrate how to use this information for program planning.
