The smoking cessation services at NHP are designed to help members sort through information about quitting methods and decide on a method that is most appropriate for them. The smoking cessation counselor will help members develop behavior change strategies for dealing with the cravings and facilitate access to prescription and over-the-counter cessation medications (both covered by NHP).
The cessation counselor will work with all referred smokers, but will place an emphasis on pregnant women, diabetics, and asthmatics. These higher-risk smokers will be followed more intensively than will smokers who do not fall into one of those categories.
