Highmark Delaware now offers a new Diabetes Prevention Program for employees and non-Medicare pensioners and their adult (18 years of age or older) dependents who are covered through the State of Delaware's Comprehensive PPO or First State Basic PPO plans. View the Flyer. The program provides two options: (1) In-person program at participating YMCA locations or (2) Online program through Retrofit. Both programs are comprehensive, recognized by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and available at no cost to members, if they meet certain criteria. The program helps members who have prediabetes to make healthier lifestyle choices. Prediabetes can often be reversed through weight loss, healthy diet changes, stress reduction and increased physical activity.

To learn more about these program options and see if you meet the program requirements, call 1-844-459-6452 or log into your Highmark member website. Once logged in, click on Diabetes Prevention. You will be taken to a page where you can learn more about prediabetes, risk factors and the two available program options. After you select a program link, you will then complete a risk assessment to determine whether you qualify for the program. If you qualify, you will be given further instructions on how to enroll.
