Employer Perspective on Tobacco Use and Cessation Programs

ACHI staff have worked with the Arkansas Department of Health to analyze the issue of tobacco use and health insurance coverage for tobacco cessation programs from an employer perspective. Questions explored and addressed through a series of four issue briefs published by ACHI include:

  • How have continuously rising health coverage premiums over the past several years affected employer decisions?
  • What challenges and opportunities do employers face in the wake of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act when it comes to employee use of tobacco and coverage of cessation programs?
  • What does tobacco use and coverage of cessation programs cost Arkansas employers?

Brief reports describing answers to these questions can be accessed through the links below.
