Learn More About Prediabetes and Diabetes Prevention

The ​National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP) is a CDC-recognized, research-based lifestyle change program focused on making small sustainable changes in healthy eating and physical activity. Studies show people with prediabetes who take part in a structured lifestyle change program can cut their risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58 percent (71 percent for people 60 and older). 

NDPP costs may be covered by your health insurance. Private employer insurances may cover this benefit. Call the number on your insurance card to find out. Medicaid managed care organizations may cover NDPP as a value-added benefit. Call the number on your insurance card to see if it is covered. Medicare covers the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program (MDPP) once in your lifetime.
