Public Health Emergency DPP Extension through 12/31/23

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program (DPRP) are allowing delivery mode flexibilities from the public health emergency to extend through 12/31/2023. This means that any cohorts that start on or before 12/31/23 using a delivery mode other than what has been officially approved can continue that mode until the cohort is finished.

For example, if you are only approved for in-person DPP delivery, you could start a DPP cohort on 12/31/23 that is carried out online and that cohort could stay in the online mode until it is finished. This extension also applies to Medicare DPP providers.

To confirm how this extension affects your DPP, reach out to or

Want to Enroll as a Michigan Medicaid DPP (MiDPP) Provider?

The MiDPP is based on the CDC’s Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program (DPRP). All organizations, wishing to become a MiDPP provider in Michigan, must first obtain recognition (preliminary, full or full plus) from CDC’s Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program.

Before enrolling as a Medicaid MiDPP provider, all organizations interested in becoming a Medicaid enrolled provider must contact MDHHS Diabetes and Kidney Unit (DKU) at

All MiDPP providers must be enrolled with Community Health Automated Medicaid Processing System (CHAMPS.)  CHAMPS is the one-stop shop for provider enrollment, re-enrollment, revalidation, information updates and demographic changes. Once MDHHS DKU approves your pre-enrollment form, your organization may go ahead with provider enrollment in CHAMPS.

All MiDPP providers will need to contract directly with Medicaid Health Plans directly to submit claims to a Medicaid member’s specific health plan. As a starting point, MiDPP Providers can visit the Medicaid Health Plans Contact and Service Listing to see what Medicaid Health Plans are in their service area. Check back with this site frequently as new service areas may be approved monthly.

  • The CDC recognized National Diabetes Prevention Program is a lifestyle change program to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. Hundreds of CDC recognized Diabetes Prevention Programs nationwide support participants in making lasting lifestyle changes, like eating healthier, adding physical activity into their daily routine, and improving coping skills.

    To ensure high quality, CDC recognizes Diabetes Prevention Programs that meet certain DPRP Standards and show they can achieve results. These standards include following an approved curriculum, facilitation by a trained lifestyle coach, and submitting data every 6 months to show that the program is having an impact.
