Dear NAQC Members,

January 10, 2018

register now

This webinar will address the goals outlines in NAQC’s paper on Engaging Health Plans and Employers in Purchasing Quitline Services. Participants will learn about ways states have used legislation, quitline eligibility requirements and engagement strategies to improve access to cessation services, including access to quitline services for public and private health plans. Participants will also learn about resources developed by NAQC and states.
Learning Objectives:
During this webinar, participants will:

1.     Learn about ways state quitlines have revised eligibility, their rationale, and the impact on provision of cessation treatment by public and private partners.

2.     Discuss the importance of relationship-building, and tactics for bringing partners to the table to purchase quitline services and/or improve access to cessation benefits, including private employers and health plans.

3.     Learn about one state’s successes and challenges in using state legislation to increase that access to evidence-based cessation treatment and the role quitlines can play in ensuring compliance.

Webinar Resources:
In 2017, NAQC published four thought papers regarding the impact of the ACA on quitlines. These papers explore topics important for the quitline community and incorporate feedback from NAQC members. While the 2017-2018 webinar series will address the first two thought papers, we have provided links to all four thought papers for your reference.
