CDC, NAQC and the Tobacco Control Network (TCN) have been discussing a number of different webinars and activities to help states better understand the new Medicaid benefit on cessation. As a first step, NAQC and the TCN are proud to co-host a webinar on the new Medicaid tobacco cessation services outlined by CMS in its letter to state Medicaid directors on June 24th. The webinar will take place on July 27th from 2:30-4:00 PM ET and we will be joined by Sharon Brown, Senior Policy Analyst for the Financial Management Group of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Registration will not be required and the webinar agenda with log-in information will be distributed via NAQC e-bulletin and the TCN listserv when it is finalized.
If you have specific content you would like addressed in this webinar and/or questions you hope will be answered, please send those to Tamatha Thomas-Haase at firstname.lastname@example.org NO LATER THAN 4:00 PM ET ON JULY 20th. Additionally, please let Tamatha know if you have relevant experiences with Medicaid to share with your peers as we all work to reduce tobacco prevalence among the Medicaid population. We are depending on your valuable input to frame the content of the webinar and the ongoing discussions that are sure to follow.
NAQC and TCN are excited about this opportunity and look forward to your participation on the 27th.
