The Diabetes Prevention Act of 2012 Is Before Congress

This bill would allow Medicare coverage of the National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) for beneficiaries who have been diagnosed with prediabetes. Expanding Medicare coverage to include this program will help to prevent diabetes among this high-risk population and potentially save the federal government billions of dollars. Medicare does not currently provide coverage for the DPP which is aimed at people with prediabetes.
