New York Demonstration Project Paves the Way for Access to National DPP

NACDD helped the New York State Department of Health plan and host a Stakeholder Engagement Meeting in 2016, resulting in an action plan that promotes implementation of coverage for the National Diabetes Prevention Program. New York-Presbyterian Hospital recently collaborated with Omada Health to launch a digital National DPP demonstration project for 100 hospital employees with prediabetes. Results of this demonstration will inform decision-making on adding the National DPP as a covered benefit for the hospital’s 23,000 employees. Other employers can learn  how to start an employee benefit coverage process by tapping into the new NACDD National DPP Coverage Toolkit.
