Tobacco Cessation Coverage

Last Updated on August 28, 2018

 Family Health Center offers coverage for all FDA-approved tobacco cessation medications, including over-the-counter drugs, with a prescription authorization. FDA-approved medications include bupropion SR tablets, varenicline (Chantix®), nicotine patches, nicotine inhaler, nicotine nasal spray, nicotine gum and nicotine lozenges. Members will not be assessed copayments on these drugs and coverage may be allowed up to 180 days per calendar year. Members are required to obtain the generic versions, if available, to qualify for the “no copay” benefit. Prescriptions will be covered when they are processed at a network pharmacy.

Security Health Plan offers a Tobacco Free program to support members while they quit. Members can enroll in the program by calling 1-800-472-2363.
