If you are a Cigna customer interested in taking that first step toward quitting tobacco, check with your benefits specialist or call the number on the back of your Cigna ID card to see if tobacco cessation counseling is a covered benefit. If it is, make an appointment with your health care provider today so you can develop a plan of action for quitting.
If it is not a covered benefit, our CMG staff can help you by facilitating a referral to the Arizona Smoker's Helpline (ASHLine)*. The ASHLine specializes in tobacco cessation counseling. Located at the University of Arizona, this evidence-based tobacco cessation program has helped people kick the tobacco habit since 1995. They offer free telephone- and web-based services in English and Spanish, and in some cases they may be able to assist with medication to help people quit using tobacco. Individuals who utilize a quit line as well as medication double their success rate in becoming tobacco-free.
So whether you are thinking about quitting, you're ready to quit or you are just working to stay tobacco-free, we can help.
