Scaling and Sustainability
This section provides resources about how to expand and sustain coverage of the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) lifestyle change program.
This page is intended to provide National DPP stakeholders with information about Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and specific strategies for how to engage ACOs in the effort to prevent type 2 diabetes.
This page provides information and examples for how state agencies can assess the landscape and technical assistance needs of CDC-recognized organizations, expand the capacity of the state network through support of existing and recruitment of new organizations, help organizations develop business acumen skills for successfully engaging with payers, and explore options for providing third-party or collective administrative support. Many of the state examples relate to Medicaid coverage of the National DPP lifestyle change program, yet the strategies and lessons learned may be applied more broadly.
Umbrella hub arrangements connect community-based organizations (CBOs) with health care payment systems to pursue sustainable reimbursement for the National DPP lifestyle change program. This page provides information on the objectives of these types of arrangements, the key participants and partners, considerations for establishing an umbrella hub arrangement, the role of public health and Medicaid, and considerations for business structure and sustainability.
Achieving Medicaid coverage of the National DPP lifestyle change program is an important milestone towards reducing the prevalence of type 2 diabetes in a state. To facilitate uptake of the benefit, states are encouraged to leverage a variety of communication and promotion strategies to generate enthusiasm, buy-in, and engagement with the benefit. This page describes approaches that states have taken to communicate and promote the benefit.
