National Diabetes Prevention Program :: Kentucky

Kentucky


Kentucky is approaching diabetes prevention by creating awareness of prediabetes treatment options, educating employers about evidence-based lifestyle programs, such as the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), and exploring opportunities for it to be offered as a covered benefit. The KY Diabetes Prevention and Control Program (DPCP) developed a heath care provider toolkit and implemented awareness campaigns geared towards health care providers and diabetes educators. Presentations on prediabetes/diabetes prevention and the toolkits were provided throughout the state at continuing education trainings. Kentucky is working with both the state government and the private sector to present the business case of offering DPP as a covered benefit for state and other employees. Additionally, Kentucky is advocating for DPP to be a reimbursable benefit under Kentucky's Medicaid program.
