The number of people being diagnosed with diabetes is rising year after year, and the costs for treatment are also rising. An increase in employees with diabetes can be very costly for employers as well as employees. Read More about the high cost of diabetes for employers.

Employers and insurers continue to look for ways to help their employees and insurance members improve their health and well-being. On average, 1 in 3 employees or members may have prediabetes, which, if left untreated, can progress to type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is one of the top medical expenditures for employers and insurers; it also contributes to reduced productivity, missed work days, and places a toll on patients and their families.

The AMA DPP Cost Saving Calculator will help your organization to calculate potential medical cost savings from providing the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) as a covered benefit.

Calculate Your Potential Savings

Congress authorized the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to establish the NATIONAL DIABETES PREVENTION PROGRAM (National DPP) – a public-private initiative to offer evidence-based, cost effective interventions in communities across the United States to prevent type 2 diabetes. It brings together community organizations, private insurers, employers, health care organizations, faith-based organizations and government agencies to help implement a lifestyle change program which provides:

  • A trained lifestyle coach
  • CDC-approved curriculum
  • Group support over the course of a year

As an employer you may benefit by adding a CDC-recognized diabetes prevention lifestyle change program as a covered health benefit. Read more about this on the National CDC website.
