If you are 65 years of age or older and have Medicare Part B, you may be able to participate in the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program (Medicare DPP) at no cost to you. The Medicare DPP is a year-long, CDC-recognized lifestyle change program that has been proven to reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes by more than 70%.
If you join a CDC-recognized lifestyle change program, you get:
A trained lifestyle coach.
Support from a small group of people who are all working toward the same goal.
Tips to help you make better food choices, add more physical activity to your daily routine, and cope with challenges and stress.
The program can also help you increase your energy, so you can do more of the things you love.
Medicare Part B covers the program if you are overweight and have prediabetes, a condition in which blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough yet to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes. If you are 65 years of age or older, you are at higher risk of having prediabetes, which puts you at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes, stroke, and heart disease.
Select lifestyle change classes across the country are now part of the Medicare DPP. Talk with your health care provider to find out if you are eligible for the program and learn if there is a Medicare DPP provider near you. Act now! Take advantage of this life-changing opportunity today.
