Free Smoking Cessation
The US Surgeon General has said, “Smoking cessation [stopping smoking] represents the single most important step that smokers can take to enhance the length and quality of their lives.”
There is no one way to quit, but certain things can be extra helpful. For example, medication can double your chances of quitting for good. Medications can help you handle withdrawal and cravings. If eligible members or dependents want to stop smoking, they can get over-the-counter and prescription smoking cessation medications for free through their prescription drug benefit. Get a prescription from your doctor and fill it out at no additional cost.
