9. Implement and Sustain Your Program

Your organization may already offer the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) lifestyle change program as a covered benefit. Or you may be getting ready to start offering it. This section will describe factors to consider as you prepare to implement or expand your program. You can return to this section regularly as you look for ways to sustain and continually improve your program. How you’ve structured your program and key decisions you’ve made along the way will influence how you administer the National DPP lifestyle change program as a covered benefit for your employees and other beneficiaries. See sections 9.6 through 9.8 for specific factors to consider according to your program design.
