Smoking Cessation Benefit | Texas Children's Health Plan

Smoking Cessation Benefit

If you’re ready to quit smoking, Texas Children’s Health Plan can help. If your child has an asthma diagnosis, you can get coaching and up to $75 of stop-smoking products each month.

How do I claim my extra benefit?

Contact your child’s Case Manager or Service Coordinator to claim this extra benefit. You can also get a referral to the Texas Children’s Health Plan Case Management Program from your child’s primary care provider (PCP). Once Texas Children’s Health Plan confirms that your child is an active member, you will be able to pick up your stop-smoking products at your in-network pharmacy.

Who is eligible?

Tobacco-dependent parents of CHIP members under the age of 19 and STAR and STAR Kids members under the age of 20 years who have an asthma diagnosis.

Is this extra benefit available in my service area?

Available in Harris, Jefferson, and Northeast service areas.
