Medicaid Coverage for the National DPP Demonstration Project
The commitment of all partners to this important endeavor brought about the conclusion of a successful and insightful project that will have an important impact on underserved populations around the country.
Below is a diagram of the partners involved in the Demonstration as well as specific information about their roles in the project.
Maryland Medicaid, in collaboration with Maryland State Health Department’s Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Control, was funded to implement the Demonstration project in Maryland.
Four Medicaid managed care organizations (MCOs)—Amerigroup, Priority Partners, Jai Medical Systems, and MedStar Family Choice—were selected to implement the National DPP lifestyle change program for Medicaid beneficiaries at risk for type 2 diabetes. The intent of the funding was to allow these MCOs to build a sustainable infrastructure for diabetes prevention for their at-risk beneficiaries.

The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) implemented the Demonstration project through their Health Systems Division (Medicaid) and Public Health Division. OHA integrated the Health Systems Division’s focus on preventive services with the Public Health Division’s community collaborative infrastructure (the Sustainable Relationships for Community Health model) in order to distribute funding through local public health agencies to 3 of the state’s 16 coordinated care organizations (CCOs) to deliver the National DPP lifestyle change program to their Medicaid recipients. The CCOs were FamilyCare Health, Health Share of Oregon, and Trillium Community Health Plan.
