Maryland: Help your Medicaid patients prevent diabetes

Last modified: May 13, 2021

If you have Maryland patients with prediabetes or who are at risk for getting type 2 diabetes, the HealthChoice Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) can help. Medicaid community plan members are eligible to join and receive assistance with:

  • Developing healthy eating habits
  • Increasing daily physical activity
  • Lowering risk of type 2 diabetes
  • Improving coping skills

The program helps patients live a healthier life through tracking food and activity, as well as real-time coaching and one-on-one or small group support.

How to help:

Encourage your patients to learn more about this program by downloading the free DPPStar PreDiabetes app on the Apple Store or Google Play or by calling the member services number on the back of their ID card.
