Diabetes Prevention Module

Type 2 diabetes affects 1 in 10 people in America, and 9 in 10 people with prediabetes don’t know they have it. This module focuses on providing diabetes prevention options through certified providers to accommodate employers and at-risk employees in different industries and across urban and rural areas. 

What It Is

The Diabetes Prevention Module assists employers to offer the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) to employees as a covered benefit. In partnership with public health, insurers, employer coalitions, program providers, and pharmacies, we aim to increase awareness, promotion, and coverage of a variety of evidence-based programs to help employees prevent and manage chronic illnesses, like diabetes.

What Is Included

Survey

We are working to expand access to the National DPP. Our employee risk test is an identification tool used to gain an understanding of the risk of type 2 diabetes among working adults. Help us help your organization better understand the risk and #preventdiabetes. All personal information is kept confidential.

Advising

Reporting is available to provide targeted recommendations to advance your workplace diabetes prevention initiatives. After you review the employer decision map, you will be paired with one of our expert advisors who will walk you through the next steps and collaborate with you to build a customized diabetes prevention action plan for your organization.

Toolkit

Check out our employer decision map to learn how to launch the National DPP as a covered benefit at your workplace.  Our online resource center provides evidence-based resources, guides, and sample policies proven to support employees with different needs. 

How It Works

All employers in North America can participate in this module. To get started:

  1. Schedule an advising session with our team
  2. Review the employer decision map
  3. Take the individual risk test and share it with your employees
