Smoking Cessation

Using tobacco increases your chances of illness and costs a lot of money. If you are ready to try and quit tobacco we are here to help! Bowdoin’s health plan covers:

  • Doctor office visits to talk about tobacco cessation do not require a co-pay
  • Hypnosis for smoking cessation is covered at 100% after a $15 co-pay
  • You can get reimbursed if you complete a certified smoking cessation program referred by your healthcare provider
  • Tiered prescription benefits for tobacco treatment prescriptions

One of Bowdoin’s preferred providers, Mid Coast Hospital, offers ongoing tobacco cessation groups and programs year round. There are also online resources from the Partnership for a Tobacco Free Maine and Anthem provides online resources to help you give-up the habit.
