Smoking Cessation Assistance
Broward County > Benefits > Smoking Cessation Assistance

Since plan year 2010, the County has implemented a Tobacco User Surcharge of $20 per paycheck if any enrolled member age 18+ uses tobacco products. To assist members who would like to quit using tobacco products, the County has done several things:

  1. Waived the copay for prescription smoking cessation drugs (Zyban, Chantix, etc)
  2. Waived the copay for over-the-counter smoking cessation drugs (Nicorette gum, Nicoderm patches, etc). Requires a written prescription from a physician.

Note: the annual pharmacy benefit limit for smoking cessation products/drugs is a plan cost max of $500 (increased from $350 for 2013).

Smoking cessation assistance is also available through Tobacco Free Florida at www.tobaccofreeflorida.com, or 1-877-U CAN NOW.
