Smoking Cessation Products are no longer Covered by MaineCare

September 5, 2012

Smoking cessation products are no longer covered by MaineCare. Pregnant women are still able to get smoking cessation products covered by MaineCare. This change started on September 1, 2012.

The Maine Tobacco Helpline may be able to help members still get smoking cessation products. The helpline provides support services and if someone qualifies, helpline staff may be able to help an individual get a nicotine patch, lozenge, or gum as part of their Medication Program. Members can call the Maine Tobacco Helpline at 1-800-207-1230.
