What does my insurance cover?

The good news is the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) in 2010 requires Medicaid and most private insurers to pay for tobacco cessation treatment — regardless of your level of coverage.

 

Most insurance plans cover tobacco treatment, including counseling and Nicotine Replacement Therapy).

TCSRI accepts most commercial and Medicaid insurance plans and will help you determine exactly what your plan covers and will work with your insurer to help you maximize your benefits. We will begin accepting Medicare in January 2020.
