Developing cost-sharing partnerships with both the private and public health plan sectors can help maximize quitline services and strengthen quitline sustainability. NAQC’s work is focused on1) establishing a strong foundation of common knowledge among states, provinces and coalitions on how to advance tobacco coverage among public and private insurers, and 2) providing technical assistance to a number of states.
