Tobacco Cessation

GREAT NEWS! Advanced Health covers nicotine patches, gum, lozenges, Chantix, and Buproprion SR without a prior authorization!

How does a member sign up for the Smoking Cessation Program? Talk to your provider about quitting and if medicine is right for you. Advanced Health pays for nicotine patches, gum, lozenges, Chantix, and Buproprion SR 150 mg tablets. We pay for 90 days of medicine up to two times per year with a prescription.

Participation in tobacco cessation classes is strongly encouraged but is not required. Attending tobacco cessation classes increases the likelihood of successful quitting. Classes are available free of charge to our Advanced Health members.

Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable death and disease in Oregon.  In Oregon, 77% of current adult smokers want to quit, but success can depend on receiving evidence-based support, including counseling and medication.  Benefits offered by health plans play an important role in providing the support needed to successfully quit.
