The American Lung Association supports state policies that give smokers easy access to all treatments proven effective to help them quit. This includes:

  • Fully funding state tobacco control programs including quitlines
  • Providing a comprehensive, easily-accessed tobacco cessation benefit to all Medicaid enrollees and state employees, and through other state-run health insurance plans
  • Ensuring all private health insurance plans cover a comprehensive, easily-accessible tobacco cessation benefit
