Are you covered by American’s Core, Standard, Value or PPO/80/90/100 medical plan option?

Do you want help to stop using tobacco?

Great news! American has made it even easier for you to access the medications you need to go tobacco-free. With a prescription, employees, spouses, domestic partners and dependents over 18 covered by the Core, Standard, Value or PPO/80/90/100 medical options will automatically receive a free 30-day supply of tobacco cessation medications through retail pharmacies or a 90-day supply through either the home delivery pharmacy or a CVS or Safeway pharmacy. Call Express Scripts at 800-988-4125 to learn more or simply get a prescription from your doctor and fill it at an in-network pharmacy.

Employees enrolled in the Core, Standard, Value or PPO/80/90/100 medical options can also call WebMD to get connected with a certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist, at no cost. Your Tobacco Treatment Specialist can answer your questions, help you with a quit plan and keep you on track with your goals. They can also provide free nicotine replacement therapy such as gum or patches. Call 888-383-8740 to get started.

Here are a few things you might want to know:

You'll need a prescription from your healthcare provider. To view an approved medication list click here.

Your WebMD health coach can provide over the counter nicotine replacement therapies (gum, lozenges, or patches) at no cost, if you’d rather try one of these before beginning prescription treatment.

You do not need to work with a WebMD health coach to receive free tobacco cessation medications; however, working with a health coach can help you get started and stay on track.

Employees and family members enrolled in an HMO or coverage outside of American should refer to their health plan for coverage information, or visit the Tobacco Free Resource Page for local and national tobacco cessation resources.
