HELP PREGNANT VERMONTERS QUIT

Knowing how to support your pregnant patients with quitting tobacco can be difficult. 1-800-QUIT-NOW has a special program for pregnant Vermonters who smoke or use other tobacco. Patients will work with a supportive Pregnancy Quit Coach during and after their pregnancy. The program includes:

  • 9 calls with their own personal coach
  • Free text messaging support
  • Free Nicotine Replacement Therapy with a doctor’s prescription

And now, eligible Vermont Medicaid members who use tobacco are covered for up to 16 face-to-face tobacco cessation counseling sessions per calendar year with an authorized health care professional. Learn more and see a description of the codes available here.
