HealthChoice Diabetes Prevention Program Information for Providers

About the National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP)

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) created the National Diabetes Prevention Program—or National DPP—to address the prediabetes and type 2 diabetes public health crisis in the United States. A key component of the National DPP is the CDC-recognized lifestyle change program, a research-based program focusing on healthy eating and physical activity. People with prediabetes who take part in a structured lifestyle change program can cut their risk of developing type 2 in half.

CDC-recognized lifestyle change programs may enroll with Maryland Medicaid to administer the National DPP to eligible HealthChoice members.

All HealthChoice DPP providers must be enrolled with Maryland Medicaid’s electronic Provider Revalidation and Enrollment Portal (ePREP)​.  ePREP is the one-stop shop for provider enrollment, re-enrollment, revalidation, information updates and demographic changes.
