Tobacco Cessation Counseling Support 

For Medica Medicare Members

If you use tobacco, but would like to quit, you have access to two levels of counseling support depending on your health status. Signs or symptoms of tobacco-related disease determine your eligibility of coverage for counseling quit attempts.

  • If you use tobacco, but do not have signs or symptoms of tobacco-related disease: We cover two counseling quit attempts within a 12-month period as a preventive service with no cost to you. Each counseling attempt includes up to four face-to-face visits.
  • If you use tobacco and have been diagnosed with a tobacco-related disease or are taking medicine that may be affected by tobacco: We cover cessation counseling services. We cover two counseling quit attempts within a 12-month period; however, you will pay the applicable cost-sharing. Each counseling attempt includes up to four face-to-face visits.
