Webinar: Save Money: The Massachusetts Tobacco Cessation Medicaid Benefit

Tuesday, February 7, 2012  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov

Partnership for Prevention is pleased to sponsor a webinar highlighting a new study on the Massachusetts Medicaid tobacco cessation benefit. Research for the project was undertaken by health economists at The George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services, with funding from Partnership for Prevention. Results from the study show a significant positive return on investment when compared to the costs of implementing the Massachusetts tobacco control program.

Because advocates in many states are currently attempting to expand tobacco cessation treatment coverage for Medicaid beneficiaries, the speakers will also discuss the policy implications of this research. Additionally, the program will spotlight New York State, which has had recent success expanding coverage.

An accompanying ActionToQuit policy paper can be downloaded here.
