Smoking Cessation Programs & Your Health Plan

Smoking Cessation

Did you know that your health insurance plan may offer a smoking cessation program?

Yep, it’s true!

While not all insurance carriers offer this benefit, most are starting to, and it’s worth checking into!

If you are interested in quitting smoking, give your health insurance company a call using the number on the back of your ID card and ask if they offer a smoking cessation program.

If they do, make sure to ask them what resources are available to you through the program.

Some of the resources provided to you by your smoking cessation program may include:

  • Replacement nicotine patches
  • Nicotine gum
  • Nicotine Lozenges

Most of the time, prior authorization is needed from your doctor for a smoking cessation program and it’s usually a one-time, 90-day program.

Each carrier may differ in the details, so again, make sure to check with your insurance carrier to get the exact information!

If you have any questions regarding this benefit, give Clevenger Insurance a call today at 574-267-2181.
