Kdmc Receives Certificate of CDC Full Recognition for Diabetes Prevention Program

Prevent type 2 diabetes

Dear Amy Case,

It is my pleasure to congratulate you and Kings Daughters Medical Center on earning CDC Full Recognition for your diabetes prevention program (expiring 03/31/2023). This designation is reserved for programs that have effectively delivered a quality, evidence-based program that meets all of the standards for CDC recognition. The sustained success of your lifestyle change program makes an invaluable contribution to the prevention of type 2 diabetes, both in your community and nationally. We appreciate your participation in the National Diabetes Prevention Program and we are committed to working with you to do everything we can to ensure your continued success as a critical member of our national effort.

As you may be aware, CDC-recognized organizations achieving preliminary or full recognition status can enroll in Medicare as Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program (MDPP) suppliers. Enrollment in Medicare as an MDPP supplier is required before an organization can bill Medicare for in-person DPP services provided to eligible beneficiaries. Organizations that are already enrolled in Medicare (e.g. a hospital) must also enroll as an MDPP supplier to receive reimbursement for MDPP services. Additional information on the MDPP enrollment process, supplier requirements, and reimbursement rates can be accessed at

As the Team Lead of the National Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program, it is immensely gratifying to see the science of diabetes prevention being implemented to improve the public’s health. You and your colleagues should be extremely proud of this accomplishment. It is programs like yours that are turning the tide in the fight against the epidemic of type 2 diabetes. Thank you for all that you are doing and for your commitment to reducing the preventable burden of diabetes in the U.S.
