Tobacco Cessation Support

As part of Healthcare Reform, the Tobacco Cessation Support program has been expanded and now includes most generic prescriptions and support free of cost. It is no longer necessary to fill out a reimbursement form. Simply obtain a prescription from your doctor and go to any in-network pharmacy to have it filled using your CVS Caremark card.
