Tobacco Cessation and the Affordable Care Act

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has made major changes to the health insurance market and has increased the focus on prevention in healthcare, which includes tobacco cessation. Over the last decade major changes have been made to the ways healthcare is delivered and paid for in this country. This continues to create a great opportunity to incorporate tobacco cessation treatment as a key to preventing deadly disease and rapidly rising healthcare costs.

The American Lung Association provides materials and analyses exploring ACA provisions that address tobacco cessation and prevention, including the federal guidance recommending a comprehensive tobacco cessation benefit. Please check this page regularly, as materials will be added as they become available.
