Medicaid Incentives for the Prevention of Diabetes

Program Location: 
Minneapolis, MN
Payer Type: 

The primary prevention goal of the Minnesota Medicaid Incentives for Prevention of Diabetes targets weight loss as the gateway to long-term reductions in diabetes, improved cardiovascular health, and reduced health care expenditures. Working with the state health department and the local and national YMCAs, the state Medicaid program will enroll Medicaid beneficiaries between the ages of 18 and 75 who live in the Twin Cities metro area, and who have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes or who have a significant risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The program, taught by certified YMCA coaches, will work with the State’s 36 certified health care homes to identify participants and offer them the opportunity to participate at no cost.
