Leveraging the State’s Department of Insurance to Ensure Cessation Coverage and Compliance

Monday, September 15, 2014  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov
Dear Colleagues:
The document, “FAQs about Affordable Care Act Implementation,”  recently issued by the U.S. Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and the Treasury offers a unique opportunity for state tobacco programs to collaborate with their Department of Insurance to expand comprehensive and evidence-based  tobacco cessation coverage among insurers.  To assist states, NAQC has developed a letter in template form that can be sent to the State’s Department of Insurance requesting their assistance with educating insurers on the Affordable Care Act cessation coverage requirements and ensuring compliance.
States may adapt the letter to best meet their needs, and if appropriate include information about the options for cost-sharing partnerships with the state quitline. These types of partnerships can assist insurers with their compliance with the ACA, as well as helping to increase access to evidence-base cessation services within the state.  For more information on cost-sharing partnerships or models, visit or contact Deb Osborne, NAQC Public-private Partnership Manager at
