In a blog post on April 30, 2018, CMS Administrator Seema Verma encouraged community-based organizations to enroll to participate in the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program (MDPP). The MDPP model is a national performance-based payment model that offers a new approach to preventing type 2 diabetes for certain Medicare beneficiaries. It is the CMS Innovation Center’s first preventive services model to be expanded nationwide. Through the model, community-based organizations can enroll as Medicare Suppliers to provide evidence-based prevention services after achieving preliminary or full recognition through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Eligible organizations may enroll now. Additional information is available here.
