The 3 sessions will cover the following topics:

Participation in an NDPP program is at no cost to patients with prediabetes. FQHCs will learn how to become an NDPP supplier and prevent diabetes type II. NDPP is a pre-requisite to becoming a supplier of the reimbursable MDPP program.

The MDPP program is a 2-year Medicare reimbursable service for patients who have pre-diabetes or are at risk for developing diabetes. In this session FQHC’s will learn how to become an MDPP supplier.
