Can I get help if I want to stop smoking?

Your basic health insurance policy will pay for help with stopping smoking (1 program per year). It pertains to the methods that are known to work, such as personal coaching or group trainings. But your all risk will be used. Nicotine replacements and prescription medicines will also be covered, but only in combination with coaching.

Ask your insurance company how you can stop smoking!
