January 14 from 12:30-2:00 PM ET NAQC will host a webinar
Cessation Coverage: Strategies to Engage Employers!
Tobacco cessation treatment is
the single most cost-effective health benefit an employer can provide to its
employees. The CDC estimates that companies spend $3,856 per smoker per year in
direct medical costs and lost productivity. A growing number of employers
across the country have committed to providing evidence-based cessation
treatment for their employees through the use of quitlines. Learn first-hand
from an employer, health insurer and insurance broker about how they
implemented and benefited from offering cessation coverage while also meeting
the Affordable Care Act requirements.
