ACA Compliance for Employers - Charging a tobacco surcharge or premium? You need a "Reasonable Alternative Standard" for smokers or tobacco users! SmartQuit offers an evidence-based program with validated enrollment and completion data. Reporting, security, privacy and HIPAA are important considerations and included in the SmartQuit platform. Nov 9, 2016 - UPDATE: How will a new president change the ACA? We don't know yet, however we do know that smoking is bad for us and it is still the largest cause of death, disease and healthcare spending.
NRT Option: Add a 2-Week Starter Pack of NicoDerm CQ to your SmartQuit Program. With this option, your participants will receive nicotine patches shipped directly to their home as part of the program. Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) has been shown to help smokers deal with nicotine withdrawals. A combined program offers extra support for physical withdrawals while smokers learn new ways to deal with the urge to smoke... increasing their chances of success. Contact us to learn more.

SmartQuit is a mobile version of Dr. Bricker's ACT-based smoking cessation program, which has received over $13M in National Institutes of Health funding for clinical trials. The SmartQuit study results were recently published in the Journal of Drug and Alcohol Dependence. This study followed 200 smokers and found that SmartQuit users were 60 percent more likely to quit than those using the control app from smokefree.gov. This equates to being two and a half to three times more effective than trying to quit on one's own; about the same effectiveness as standard nicotine replacement therapy, texting programs or telephone coaching reported in previous published studies.
