The development of NAQC Toolboxes is supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. These toolkits provide information, examples and other resources for taking action on topics of importance to quitlines, cessation specialist, health care providers and payers, and broader tobacco control communities.
Medicaid and Quitlines: A Toolbox for Expanding Medicaid Benefits and Gaining Reimbursement for Quitlines
In July 2010, NAQC published this toolbox to encourage state quitlines, tobacco control programs and Medicaid agencies to increase the level of cessation services available to Medicaid members. The toolbox provides examples of innovative programs from leading states and primers on Medicaid that will serve as useful background in preparation for the expansion of tobacco cessation services, including quitlines, to all Medicaid members as announced by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on June 24, 2011.
Making the Case for Quitlines: A Toolbox for Communicating with the Media, Policy makers and the Public.
