Large and small employers, as well as several states such as Colorado, Kentucky, and Minnesota, are adopting this program for their employees. About 30 private insurers across the country now offer CDC-recognized lifestyle change programs as a covered benefit.

Global law firm Latham & Watkins, with nearly 3,000 attorneys and staff in the U.S. alone, launched a successful pilot of the National Diabetes Prevention Program in its New York City office with on-site A1c testing followed by lifestyle change classes throughout 2015.
Thanks to the hard work and dedication of participants—10 of whom moved from having prediabetes to normal blood sugar levels over the course of a year—the pilot’s strong results have set the stage for an expansion of the program.
