Just say “no” to tobacco!

Are you or a loved one hooked on tobacco? Join the millions who’ve found a good reason to give it up—tobacco use is the second leading cause of death worldwide, responsible for 1 in every 10 adult deaths.

Medicare can help you quit smoking. Part B covers up to 8 face-to-face visits in a 12-month period when you get them from a qualified doctor or other Medicare-recognized practitioner. You pay nothing for the counseling sessions if your doctor or other health care provider accepts assignment.

Make May 31—designated by the World Health Organization as World “No Tobacco” Day—your starting point to kick the habit. Also, visit the National Cancer Institute to find free resources to help you quit smoking.
