Two Important Tobacco Cessation Webinars - April 1 and 2!
Tuesday, March 31, 2015
Posted by: Natalia Gromov
NAQC would like to make members and partners aware of two excellent webinars that will take place this week:
FIRST, the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer will present a webinar on E-cigarettes: Friend or Foe on Wednesday, April 1 at 7 pm ET (4 pm PT). Information and the registration link is pasted below.
SECOND, on Thursday, April 2 at 2 pm ET, the American Lung Association will present a webinar on State Health Insurance Marketplace Plans: New Opportunities to Help Smokers Quit. You can registerhere for the call and submit questions ahead of time here. The webinar will review ALA’s newly released report, State Health Insurance Marketplace Plans: New Opportunities to Help Smokers Quit.This report has information about coverage of tobacco cessation medications in each marketplace (or exchange) plan in each state. The report finds that the vast majority of plans are not following Affordable Care Act requirements or the May 2014 guidance on cessation coverage. Only 17 percent of marketplace plan issuers cover all seven tobacco cessation medications with no cost-sharing and no prior authorization. West Virginia is the only state where all plans comply with the guidance – and there is only one plan issuer in that state. You can download the report here, and the appendix with detailed state-by-state information here. Below is our press release. If you have any questions about the report, please contact Jennifer Singleterry (Jennifer.email@example.com) or Erika Sward (Erika.Sward@lung.org).
