The Great American Smokeout is Coming!

As a health care professional who provides care to patients with Medicare, you can help protect the health of your patients by encouraging them to take advantage of Medicare-covered preventive services, including tobacco counseling services that are appropriate for them.

The American Cancer Society’s Great American Smokeout event occurs on the third Thursday in November. Let this year’s initiative on November 19 be a helpful tool in assisting your patients to quit!

CMS' MLN® Educational Tool Medicare Preventive Services offers information for Counseling to Prevent Tobacco Use and many other Medicare-covered preventive services. NGS' Preventive Services Guide is home to a comprehensive list of services to assist providers with questions and concerns.
