State Medicaid Coverage for Tobacco-Dependence Treatments
Medicaid coverage of tobacco-dependence treatments has been assessed regularly since 1998 by the University of California, Berkeley. To determine the extent of coverage for evidence-based treatments for nicotine dependency, all 51 Medicaid programs in the U.S. were surveyed. Programs were asked to respond regarding policies in traditional fee-for-service Medicaid, and Medicaid contracts with Managed Care Organizations.
