Quit tobacco today, with our help

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.

What is paid for?

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

Am I eligible?

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.*

How do I enroll?

Enrollment is open year-round. Fill out the form to the right or call us at (877) 737-7730 to sign up. The $700 benefit lasts for six months. You must re-enroll in each January and July to receive more funds to help you quit tobacco. We will remind you when it's time to re-enroll. There is no limit to the number of times you can enroll.
