National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP): Rate Determination Comment & Response Summary

On December 16, 2022, the Office of MaineCare Services initiated a rate determination for the NDPP, a new service that will be the Proposed MaineCare Benefits Manual (MBM), Chapter II, Section 71. MaineCare held a public forum on February 6, 2023, to present the draft service, rates, and methodologies to interested stakeholders and accept public comment. Written comments were accepted through February 27, 2023.   

Please see a summary of all comments, along with the Department’s responses explaining whether and how feedback was incorporated into the final draft service model and rates. MaineCare reviewed and took into consideration all public input received, and we thank all those who contributed. 

Final draft rates will now move through the policy adoption process. 

You may contact Bryan Lumbra, MaineCare’s Rate Setting Project Manager, with any questions about this process.
