Diabetes prevention for PEBB

This webpage offers ready-to-use resources for our member organizations in the Public Employees Benefits Board (PEBB) Program to promote diabetes prevention.

Why Diabetes prevention?

Governor Jay Inslee’s Executive Order 13-06 (Section 2b) directs the Health Care Authority (HCA) to implement a diabetes prevention program (DPP). The HCA Washington Wellness team is also a key member of the Washington State Diabetes Network Leadership Team (DNLT). Through this team, we work with statewide partners to develop strategies that align with the mission and goals of the participating organizations.

We need your help promoting diabetes prevention to improve the health and productivity of your employees and their families.

What is DPP?

The Diabetes prevention program powered by Omada is a digital lifestyle program available at no cost to eligible PEBB members. This program can help you:

  • Improve your health.

  • Feel better and more energetic.

  • Develop long-term healthy habits.

Clinical research shows these lifestyle changes can reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by almost 60 percent.

Designed for people who have prediabetes or are at risk for type 2 diabetes, with this program you will get your own:

  • Professional health coach.
  • Wireless smart scale.
  • Supportive peer group and more.

What is prediabetes?

Prediabetes is a serious health condition where blood sugar levels are higher than normal. About 84 million American adults — more than 1 out of 3 — have prediabetes. Of those with prediabetes, 90 percent do not know they have it.
