New Type 2 Diabetes Screening Guidelines

Based on recommendations of the U.S. Preventive Service Task Force, blood glucose screening is now covered as a preventive service for adults 40 to 70 years old and those with a high risk for Type 2 Diabetes.

For those with health insurance, the blood glucose screening will be provided by their doctor with zero co-pay.

Adults found to have Prediabetes, a condition where blood glucose is not normal, but not high enough to be considered Diabetes, will be eligible to enroll in a Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP).  The Diabetes Prevention Program is a year-long evidenced-based lifestyle change program.  To find a program near you, click here.

The National Diabetes Prevention Program is a partnership of public and private organizations working to reduce the growing problem of Prediabetes and Type 2 Diabetes.  To learn more, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
