Tobacco Cessation 

When our members are ready to quit tobacco, we're here to help.

Depending on plan eligibility, members may choose the level of support they want. If a member isn't sure if they are ready to quit, we can provide information and tools to help them determine when the time is right.



Medica Tobacco Cessation Program

Available to members enrolled in Minnesota Health Care Programs (MHCP)

When members enroll in Medica’s Tobacco Cessation Program, they agree to work with a health coach over the phone during confidential, one-on-one sessions. The program is designed to match the member’s pace on their journey to become tobacco free.
