Comagine Health is part of the CDC-led National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) to prevent and delay type 2 diabetes by enrolling at-risk adults in evidence-based lifestyle change programs. These programs teach people to improve their nutrition and increase physical activity. Participants have been shown to reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58% — up to 71% for people 60 and older.
Comagine Health works closely with organizations in Oregon, New Mexico, Utah and Washington to build lifestyle change programs and reach the people who need it most.

Prediabetes is a hidden risk for your employees and covered members. In the U.S., health care costs for people with diabetes are 2.3 times greater on average than for those who do not have diabetes.
The good news is prediabetes can usually be reversed. And people with prediabetes who take part in an evidence-based lifestyle change program are less likely to develop type 2 diabetes. The National Diabetes Prevention Program helps participants lose weight, adopt healthy habits and reduce their risk for type 2 diabetes.Diabetes Prevention Is Good for Business
Offering a National DPP lifestyle change program as a covered benefit for your employees and members could help you cut the risk of higher medical expenses in half. Promoting a healthier workforce can lower health insurance costs and lessen the burden of lost productivity.
Many insurers cover lifestyle change programs in their plans because the programs are backed by science and really work. Providing coverage promotes better outcomes in attendance and weight loss by making the program more accessible and affordable for employees and members.
If you are 45 or older, overweight and have a family history of type 2 diabetes, you are at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes. A lifestyle change program can help you prevent or even avoid a type 2 diabetes diagnosis.
