How to Get the Most Out of This Toolkit
This online toolkit provides specific resources and information on important topics for payers interested in covering the National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) lifestyle change program. It also links to CDC and other existing resources surrounding the National DPP lifestyle change program, making the toolkit a “one-stop-shop” for finding information about the program. Sections of the toolkit are tailored to different groups, including: state Medicaid agencies, Medicaid managed care organizations, commercial health insurance plans and employers interested in covering the program, as well as Medicare Advantage plans. Each of these pages starts with an “Explore” page that allows you to see all of the topics included in that section. Starting at or returning to the appropriate agency Explore page is a convenient way to navigate this website.
The Coverage Toolkit General Overview video below is a virtual overview of the National DPP Coverage Toolkit and includes a description of how the website is organized, suggests ways to navigate through the pages, and highlights various tools and sections in order for visitors to get the most use from this online resource.
