Diabetes Prevention:New Pathways for Reimbursement (Webinar) (05/02/17)

Publication Date: May 2, 2017

The recent decision by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to make the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) the first preventive program under the Affordable Care Act to be expanded from an innovation pilot to reimbursable coverage for the Medicare population has opened the door for new opportunities for delivery of this proven program. In this webinar, participants will hear Dr. Ann Albright, the Director of the Division of Diabetes Translation at the CDC give an overview of the National DPP, Kelly McCracken of the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) provide details on a project in Maryland and Oregon to demonstrate how the National DPP’s lifestyle change program can be delivered to the Medicaid population as well as become a covered benefit for that population, and Laura Summers of Leavitt Partners provide an overview of an online National DPP Coverage Toolkit to assist private and public payers interested in covering the service.
