On Tuesday, December 13 from 3 to 4:30pm ET join us for a webinar on how to use open enrollment to maximize tobacco cessation coverage, ‘Tis the Season: Leverage Open Enrollment & Maximize Coverage for Tobacco Cessation.


Both the holiday season and health insurance Marketplaces and Medicare open enrollment are here. Open enrollment is a great opportunity for people living with behavioral health conditions to consider their health insurance options. Given the high rates of tobacco use among people living with mental illnesses and substance use disorders, health insurance coverage is a valuable tool that enables access to tobacco cessation, mental health and substance use disorders prevention and treatment.  During this webinar, participants will learn about:

  • Navigating health insurance Marketplace and Medicare coverage opportunities
  • Marketplace subsidies such as the premium tax credit, and cost sharing reductions; and fees such as the tobacco surcharge, and individual shared responsibility payment
  • Utilizing tools and resources to help providers to assist clients with coverage assessment and plan selection
  • Successful strategies and lessons from the field regarding conducting outreach and enrollment to clients.
