AMA calls for public, private health plans to cover CDC diabetes prevention program

June 24, 2016

The AMA during its annual meeting in Chicago announced a new policy encouraging both private and public health care plans to include the CDC’s National Diabetes Prevention Program as a benefit for patients with prediabetes, according to a press release.

The new policy also calls on hospitals to offer the CDC National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), and supports allocating community benefit funds to cover the cost of enrolling patients into an in-person or virtual version of the program. The AMA stated it will reach out to organizations including the American Hospital Association to develop and distribute guidance for covering the costs of the DPP.
