|In addition to technical support to quitlines working to leverage all of the opportunities resulting from the Affordable Care Act and the CMS guideline on quitlines, NAQC also aims to elevate the structural, operational and policy barriers that hinder implementation of comprehensive cessation coverage to Medicaid members to those who are most able to influence change. Resources on this page are intended to highlight national-level challenges that impede progress toward comprehensive and barrier-free cessation coverage for Medicaid members and outline recommendations to national partners for making progress.
