Medicaid enrollees need access to life-saving tobacco cessation treatments

Tell your member of Congress to cosponsor the Quit Because of COVID-19 Act!

H.R. 7286, introduced by Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester, would ensure that all Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) enrollees have access to the full array of proven tobacco cessation treatments at this critical time, when health experts are warning that smoking and vaping can worsen COVID-19. It will help to reduce the glaring health disparities facing our nation, save lives and improve health among Medicaid and CHIP enrollees, and reduce health care costs.
