The State Health Plan offers the American Cancer Society and Alere Wellbeing's Quit for Life® Program to subscribers and their covered dependents.
A professionally trained Quit Coach works with you to create a personalized quit plan. You may call the Quit for Life toll-free support line as often as you need. As a participant, you will receive a comprehensive Quit Guide and five telephone calls from a Quit Coach. The program provides free nicotine replacement therapy (nicotine patches, gum or lozenges), or the Quit Coach may recommend you see your doctor to find out if a smoking-cessation drug, such as bupropion or Chantix, is right for you. The prescription drugs are available through your prescription drug benefit. If additional help is needed after the 12-month program ends, you can re-enroll.
BlueChoice HealthPlan HMO offers smoking cessation through its Great Expectations® for health program. For more information, call the BlueChoice HealthPlan Health Management department at 800-327-3183, ext. 25541, or visit www.BlueChoiceSC.com.
