To qualify, the caller must be:
Callers will be screened for medical eligibility to receive the free medication.
Callers can contact the Quitline 24/7 at 1-800-QUIT-NOW (784-8669).
For Spanish, call 1-855-DÉJELO-YA (335-3569). Translation is available in more than 170 languages.
Medicaid recipients are still eligible for a 90-day supply of prescription nicotine replacement therapy at a very low cost. Individuals with private insurance should contact their insurance providers about their cessation prescription benefit. The fax referral form can be found at QuitNow.ne.gov.
This offer coincides with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s national Tips From Former SmokersTM campaign.
Health care providers who are referring patients to the Quitline should continue to use the fax referral form on the QuitNow.ne.gov website. Thank you for sharing this with individuals who might benefit from this opportunity.
Funding for this project is provided by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services/Tobacco Free Nebraska Program as a result of the Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement.
