National Diabetes Prevention Programs

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.
