All members enrolled with Magellan Complete Care who are at risk of tobacco use or are tobacco users are eligible for the smoking cessation program defined below.
Medically Necessary Tobacco Cessation Services:
MCC of FL will offer and pay for medically necessary tobacco cessation services. This includes counseling and pharmacotherapy as well as routine visits. It also includes additional counseling and tobacco cessation drug therapy when medically necessary for individuals under age 21. After reaching the first goal of one month in the program with no tobacco use, members receive a $20 pre-paid gift card. When members tell us they have met the goal of two months in the program with no tobacco use, they receive an additional $20 pre-paid Walmart gift card reward.
