Thinking about quitting smoking? Your health insurance plan may be able to help. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) and other federal regulations require almost all health insurance plans to cover some level of tobacco cessation treatments, including all FDA-approved
quit-smoking medications. For employer-sponsored insurance, tobacco cessation is considered a preventive service with four sessions of individual, group and phone counseling, 90 days of all FDA-approved smoking cessation medications, two quit attempts per year, and no prior authorization for treatments. Check with your specific plan to confirm which treatments are covered.
