The TFRI Cessation Workgroup works alongside the Rhode Island Cessation Council to address tobacco treatment needs. This workgroup is comprised of a vast representation of tobacco control partners including but not limited to tobacco treatment specialists, prevention coalitions coordinators, medical directors, etc. This workgroup is tasked with providing community input into the mapping of treatment resources and the creation of a treatment referral network.

Contact Tobacco Free Rhode Island with questions, to add a resource, or to update information: Daniel.Fitzgerald@lung.org

Following are a number of resources this workgroup has identified, also available as a PDF below.

The RI Medicaid Program and Commercial Health Insurance Tobacco Cessation Benefits Matrices listed below are being shared with healthcare providers/professionals and behavioral health clinicians to make them aware of the covered benefits as well as assist in helping individuals with commercial insurance and Medicaid members who desire to quit tobacco use and to utilize the benefits available through the insurers.

These matrices are also posted on the RI Department of Health (RIDOH) Tobacco Control Program web pages. You can access additional information on tobacco control efforts, as well:

The RIDOH Tobacco Control Program in collaboration with state entities and the public and commercial health insurers developed the matrices.
