NEW Resource: A Guide for Working with Employers to Provide Tobacco Cessation Coverage and Purchase

Monday, September 10, 2018  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov
Dear NAQC Members,

NAQC is pleased to announce a new resource, titled: A Guide for Working with Employers to Provide Tobacco Cessation Coverage and Purchase Quitline Services”. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires both self- and fully insured employers to provide tobacco cessation treatment without barriers for their employees. Public health professionals can serve as a resource to employers -- defining comprehensive cessation benefits, identifying evidence-based treatment programs and educating on the return-on-investment for quitline services. The purpose of this guide is to provide information and easy-to-access resources to state health departments and their partners who are interested in improving cessation coverage and utilization of the quitlines among employers in their states.  This guide includes an overview of the types of employers and other groups who purchase health benefits for employees and outlines the key processes that need to occur to successfully build cost-sharing partnerships with employers to improve cessation coverage and utilization of quitlines for treatment services.
 
We hope you will find the guide to be useful in your work. Please contact me at dosborne@naquitline.org with any questions.
