Support for H.R. 7856, the PREVENT DIABETES Act

April 10, 2024

Dear Representatives DeGette and Bilirakis: 

Thank you for your continued leadership in expanding access to care and championing innovative models that address diabetes prevention and support those Americans living with diabetes. The undersigned organizations strongly support the PREVENT DIABETES Act, which would broaden access to diabetes prevention services by aligning the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program (MDPP) with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), make MDPP a permanent benefit in Medicare, ensure seniors can participate in the program more than once, and expand access to all CDC-recognized delivery modalities including virtual diabetes prevention platforms in the program.
