NIOSH will randomly sample within each of the five following occupational groups: AIHA, ACOEM, AAOHN, ASSE, and other (includes members of AIA, ILCA, and NFPA). The annual number of respondents is 1500. Each participant will complete one of the four data collection instruments, depending on whether they are identified as an ‘‘intermediary’’ or ‘‘employer’’ and whether they complete the full or short version. NIOSH estimates that it will take 312 total burden hours to complete information collections, compared to 205 burden hours estimated for the 2010 CSS.

Previously, in 2011, CDC received OMB approval to collect organizational and de-identified participant information needed to administer the DPRP (OMB No. 0920–0909, expired 11/30/2014). In 2015, CDC renewed these Standards for three years (OMB No. 0920–0909, expires 12/31/2017) to continue collecting information needed to manage the DPRP. Virtual organizations were added in the 2015 Standards based on new published evidence and to reach a broader audience. Two levels of CDC recognition have been provided: Pending recognition for new applicants that have submitted an application and meet eligibility criteria defined by the Standards, and Full recognition for programs that have demonstrated effectiveness according to the Standards. CMS allows for a new recognition status, Preliminary, in addition to Pending and Full. MDPP reimbursement is directly tied to Preliminary and Full statuses. The intent of this current Standards’ revision is to align with the CMS MDPP that will be finalized in 2017 and is scheduled to go in effect January 1, 2018, and to account for new evidence in the type 2 diabetes prevention literature.

Number 0920-0909, exp. 12/31/2017)--Revision--National Center for 
Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for 
Disease Control and Prevention.

Background and Brief Description

    Evidence from efficacy and effectiveness research studies has shown 
that lifestyle modifications leading to weight loss and increased 
physical activity can prevent or delay type 2 diabetes in persons with 
prediabetes or those at high risk of developing type 2. To translate 
these research findings into practice, Section 399V-3 of Public Law 
111-148, directed CDC ``to determine eligibility of entities to deliver 
community-based type 2 diabetes prevention services,'' monitor and 
evaluate the services, and provide technical assistance. To this end, 
CDC's Division of Diabetes Translation (DDT) established and 
administers the DPRP as part of the National Diabetes Prevention 
Program, which recognizes organizations that deliver type 2 diabetes 
prevention programs according to requirements set forth in the 
``Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Recognition Program 
Standards and Operating Procedures'' (Standards).
    Currently CDC has 1,363 organizations in its DPRP registry. On July 
7, 2016, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed 
the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program (MDPP). Sections 1102 and 1871 
of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1302 and 1395hh Sec.  424.59)

authorized CDC-recognized organizations to prepare for enrollment as 
MDPP suppliers in order to bill CMS for these services beginning in 
2018; only organizations in good standing with the CDC DPRP are 
eligible as MDPP suppliers. CDC anticipates an additional 500 
organizations per year will apply for recognition.
    Previously, in 2011, CDC received OMB approval to collect 
organizational and de-identified participant information needed to 
administer the DPRP (OMB No. 0920-0909, expired 11/30/2014). In 2015, 
CDC renewed these Standards for three years (OMB No. 0920-0909, expires 
12/31/2017) to continue collecting information needed to manage the 
DPRP. Virtual organizations were added in the 2015 Standards based on 
new published evidence and to reach a broader audience.
    Two levels of CDC recognition have been provided: Pending 
recognition for new applicants that have submitted an application and 
meet eligibility criteria defined by the Standards, and Full 
recognition for programs that have demonstrated effectiveness according 
to the Standards. CMS allows for a new recognition status, Preliminary, 
in addition to Pending and Full. MDPP reimbursement is directly tied to 
Preliminary and Full statuses. The intent of this current Standards' 
revision is to align with the CMS MDPP that will be finalized in 2017 
and is scheduled to go in effect January 1, 2018, and to account for 
new evidence in the type 2 diabetes prevention literature. The MDPP 
benefit will scale type 2 diabetes prevention programs more broadly.
