The National Diabetes Prevention Program promoted by Chicago CARES is expanding to health care providers across Illinois, and is now covered by Illinois Medicaid! Learn more here.

Our goal is to raise awareness of not only the existence of prediabetes, but also how serious it is.
That’s where you come in.

Help Spread the Word

As a DPP provider, you can help us spread the word of the Free Diabetes Prevention Program by referring interested individuals.

We want to make sure everyone knows it’s not too late to do something about it. By making small changes like eating healthy, being more active, and losing weight, individuals can cut their risk of diabetes in half.

The National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) and the Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support Program (DSMES) are now both eligible for Medicaid coverage for Illinois residents!

Below you can find access to three Training Videos that can help guide you on how to Enroll as an Illinois Medicaid DPP and DSMES Provider in IMPACT, how to File a Medicaid Claim for Diabetes Self-Management Education & Support Services and how to File an Illinois Medicaid Claim for a Diabetes Prevention Program Lifestyle Change Program.
