Tobacco Cessation Coverage

Last Updated on May 18, 2021

Security Health Plan 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 is limited to 180 days per 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. 100% coverage is provided to fully insured commercial/group plans.

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.
