Many Alliance members are affected by tobacco use and addiction. Providers have an important role in helping patients quit tobacco use. We developed this guide to describe tobacco prevention and cessation services and share helpful resources.
The Alliance provides coverage of tobacco cessation services, which include assessment, medications, and counseling. In addition, member health education and provider training are available to support tobacco cessation efforts.
The interventions below follow the recommendations from the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) for tobacco cessation. Learn more about each of these interventions and other provider resources:
