The Department of Health has made a commitment to provide assistance to Medicaid recipients who want to stop smoking. Medicaid provides reimbursement for prescription and non-prescription smoking cessation drugs. The use of smoking cessation products in conjunction with as little as three minutes of counseling can significantly increase the smoking cessation success rate. Counseling supports available to Medicaid recipients include a toll-free smoking help-line staffed by employees of the Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
