Medicaid Coverage for the National Diabetes Prevention Program Demonstration Project

The purpose of this project is to demonstrate how state Medicaid agencies, in collaboration with state health departments, can implement and deliver a sustainable coverage model for the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP). This project is funded through a cooperative agreement awarded to the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of Diabetes Translation (DDT) through the CDC Office of State, Tribal, Local, and Territorial Support (OSTLTS).

On July 1, 2016, NACDD provided funding to state Medicaid agencies in Maryland and Oregon for a two-year demonstration (July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2018) to determine how to implement and deliver a sustainable coverage model of the National DPP for Medicaid beneficiaries with prediabetes through managed care organizations (MCO) and accountable care organizations (ACO).

NACDD is working with Leavitt Partners, a consulting firm that specializes in healthcare market intelligence and value-based healthcare options, to develop and refine tools to assist states in leveraging opportunities to provide coverage of the National DPP for Medicaid beneficiaries and commercial health plan members. The findings from this demonstration project as well as related market research are informing Leavitt Partners’ and NACDD’s development of an online National DPP Coverage Toolkit to enhance widespread adoption of the program by state Medicaid agencies and commercial health plans.

The National DPP Coverage Toolkit was launched 6/22/17: coveragetoolkit.org

NACDD is also working with RTI International to evaluate the process for Medicaid coverage and delivery of the National DPP in Maryland and Oregon, analyze the cost of the different delivery models, and evaluate various enrollment, engagement and retention strategies, and participant outcomes for Medicaid beneficiaries.
