Prescriptions and pretax savingsIn addition to the savings over-the-counter store brand NRT products provide, consumers can also realize potential savings by asking their healthcare provider to write a prescription for these products.  By going the prescription route, many insurance providers will offer the same NRT product for the cost of your lowest-tier co-pay, which may be less than the "shelf" price.  In many states, Medicaid covers the costs of both over-the-counter NRT products and prescriptions for quitting smoking.  For more information on the specific coverage in each state, visit the American Lung Association's website.  Other available avenues for savings include:  

  • Many employers offer free medication or assistance for employees looking to quit.  It is always worth checking with your human resources department to find out if these resources are available to you.
  • Some state quit lines may offer free or discounted smoking cessation medication.  Learn more by calling 1-800-QUIT NOW.  

  • Tips to Get StartedYour decision to stop smoking is an important one.  Tips to get started:

  • Follow a support plan.  Personalized plans are available at smokefreehabits.com.
  • Throw away all of your cigarettes, lighters and ashtrays.
  • When you feel an urge to smoke, do something else.  The urge usually passes within two or three minutes.
  • Carry things to put in your mouth, like gum or hard candy.
  • Be active.  Take a walk with a friend, ride your bike, walk the dog or play tennis.
  • Go to places you are not allowed to smoke.
  • Ask friends and/or family for support whenever you need it

  • Resources for quittersThere are a number of free resources and support programs available
