BCBSNC: Free nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) from QuitlineNC for NC Residents

     Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC) has announced that beginning on February 14th, 2013, all insured North Carolina tobacco users who register to quit using tobacco with QuitlineNC (1-800-QUIT-NOW) will be qualified to receive a free two-week starter kit of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) in the form of nicotine patches, gum, or lozenges while supplies last. It is reported that success is greatest for those who take advantage of all coaching sessions plus eight weeks of NRT.
     In order to receive the free starter kit, all eligible individuals must enroll in the Multiple Call Program of QuitlineNC. To enroll, the North Carolina tobacco user must speak with a coach after registering and set a target quit date. Blue Cross and Blue Shield recommends that employers encourage their employees who use tobacco to call the QuitlineNC number today (1-800-QUIT-NOW) and receive their starter kit. This is a great incentive to help kick the habit.

  Please note that this is for North Carolina residents only and is available only while supplies last.
