The 3 Week Diet

The Wyoming Quitline: 1-800-QUIT-NOW (toll free 1-800-784-8669). The Wyoming Quit Tobacco Program is a free and confidential tobacco cessation service available to residents of Wyoming.

When you call the Wyoming Quit Tobacco Program toll-free at 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669), a quit coach will become your personal coach to guide you through the quitting process. You can even call if you are assisting someone else in quitting smoking.

In an effort to help more Wyoming residents quit smoking or using spit tobacco, the Legislature appropriated $500,000 to allow the state’s Medicaid program to cover tobacco cessation products for Medicaid clients.

Since Jan. 2 2007, Medicaid patients only have to pay their prescription co-pay, which is less than $3, to get the products. Patients will need to get a prescription from their physician for the cessation product to be eligible for the coverage.

Prices for these cessation products range from about $50 for a 90-day supply of nicotine patches to $300 for a 90-day supply of Chantix.
