Quit Smoking

Smoking is an addiction, and quitting can be hard. Your health care provider can help you get the best treatment for your addiction.

Did you know that when your health care provider offers you medication and help, you double your chances of being smoke-free? And, most health insurance, including Medicaid, covers both medication and visits with your health care provider to help you stop smoking.

Call your health care provider today to get the help you need for your smoking addiction.

Once you talk with your health care provider and obtain your prescription for stop smoking medications, you can also get more help with your smoking addiction by calling the New York State Smokers' Quitline at 1-866-NY-QUITS (1-866-697-8487) or visiting www.nysmokefree.com. It's a free and confidential service to help you become smoke-free.
