Diabetes prevention is possible, proven and powerful, and you can offer it as a covered health benefit.

Cover a Diabetes Prevention Program as a Health Benefit

Help manage health care costs by adding a CDC-recognized diabetes prevention lifestyle change program as a covered health benefit.

Prediabetes and type 2 diabetes are growing concerns for America’s workforce, affecting the health and quality of life of millions of U.S. adults and costing employers and insurers billions of dollars each year in lost productivity and medical expenses. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-recognized lifestyle change programs for diabetes prevention have been shown to cut a person’s risk of developing type 2 diabetes in half and reduce the risk of serious conditions associated with prediabetes.

Lifestyle change programs teach healthy eating and physical activity as a way of achieving better health. Workers and employers benefit from the outcomes. Visit CDC’s Join the Movement!
