Introducing our new Medicare Topic: Tobacco Cessation

Visit our new designated Tobacco Cessation Medicare Topic for everything health care providers need to know about Medicare coverage for tobacco cessation counseling including coverage requirements, documentation guidelines, provider tools, resources and more!

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.

Our Tobacco Cessation Medicare Topic includes comprehensive lists of services to assist providers with questions and concerns.

For further information, CMS' MLN® Educational Tool: Medicare Preventive Services is a helpful toolkit for providers looking for information on Counseling to Prevent Tobacco Use, as well as many other Medicare-covered preventive services.
