NAQC's Letters of Support!

Wednesday, March 12, 2014  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov
Together with other national tobacco control organizations, NAQC has recently signed-on to a number of letters encouraging actions by the federal government and the private sector that will advance tobacco cessation.

Defining a comprehensive tobacco cessation benefit under the Affordable Care Act (ACA): As we have all learned, the lack of a defined tobacco cessation benefit under ACA is hindering the efforts of states and national organizations to gain comprehensive cessation coverage under the new law. In this letter to Secretary Sebelius, NAQC and other organizations encouraged HHS to clearly define a comprehensive tobacco cessation benefit in the ACA regulation.

Encouraging retailers to follow the lead of CVS in ending their sales of tobacco: In an open letter to retailers (especially those with pharmacies), national partners, including NAQC, encouraged retailers to end tobacco sales in their stores.

Prohibiting menthol flavoring in cigarettes: In late 2013, NAQC and its partners submitted comments urging FDA to commence rulemaking that will prohibit menthol as a flavor in cigarettes.
