The "Promoting Responsible and Effective Virtual Experiences through Novel Technology to Deliver Improved Access and Better Engagement with Tested and Evidence-Based Strategies Act", or the "PREVENT DIABETES Act", was introduced by Congressman Tom Rice (R-SC-7) on April 22, 2021. The bill would permit any online or virtual diabetes prevention program that has met the standards for full recognition by the Centers of Disease Control (CDC) Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program to apply for enrollment as a supplier under the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program (MDPP). The MDPP is designed to prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes for Medicare beneficiaries diagnosed with pre-diabetes, and covers a series of structured behavior change interventions. The bill is co-sponsored by Diana DeGette (D-CO-1), Tom Reed (R-NY-23) and G.K. Butterfield (D-NC-1).
