Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP)

Did you know that Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota (BCBSND) provides reimbursement to organizations that have obtained certification through the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to administer the National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) in North Dakota? This is an evidence-based program designed by the CDC that is focused on helping at-risk participants make positive lifestyle changes such as eating healthier, reducing stress and increasing physical activity. BCBSND began reimbursing for this on January 1, 2020. Providers that are currently credentialed as DPP providers with BCBSND are Coal Country Community Health Center and Omada Health. If you also meet the program requirements, you’re encouraged to complete a DPP credentialing application.
