Tobacco Cessation Program
Whatever your reason for quitting, you can get $700 to have your out-of-pocket quitting costs covered.
NDPERS received a grant to help covered employees quit smoking or chewing tobacco. The grant pays for approved tobacco cessation counseling, medications, health care provider visits and co-pays. This program is administered by Sanford Health Plan.
Every six months, the program pays up to $700 in tobacco cessation expenses, including:
- Up to $200 for office visits and co-pays
- Up to $500 for FDA-approved cessation medications
The Tobacco Cessation Program is available to current employees with NDPERS health coverage, of:
- State of North Dakota
- North Dakota University system
- District health units
- Garrison Diversion Conservation District
Covered dependents age 18 and over are also eligible.*
