NEW NAQC Resources on Public-Private Partnership Initiative!
For the past three years, eleven states (including Arizona, Florida, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Texas and Utah
) have participated in the NAQC Public-Private Partnership Initiative to advance tobacco cessation coverage and sustainability of state quitlines. As states have learned, partnership development takes time, determination and flexibility. To learn more about some of the key successes, challenges and solutions identified by the participating states as they worked to advance tobacco cessation coverage offered by employers and health plans, and increase awareness of cost-sharing partnerships with the state quitline, please see the summary article, “States Advance Cessation Coverage and Quitline Sustainability
