Tobacco Cessation Toolkit

Medical Worker Nurse Talking with Senior Patient

The Tobacco Cessation Toolkit is developed by Health Services Advisory Group (HSAG) to help clinicians implement evidence-based tobacco cessation care in their practices. Use the resources in this toolkit to understand tobacco cessation intervention steps, coding and payment information, and patient education. Start by taking a quick web-based assessment of your organization to identify how your practice currently functions to support tobacco cessation activities. 

Counseling for tobacco cessation, if well documented, can be reimbursed. Review the resources below to learn about the tobacco cessation counseling codes, national payment amount, and the documentation necessary to fulfill the billing requirements.

Technical Assistance—For any questions or for no-cost individualized technical assistance, please fill out the web-based form below. An HSAG technical assistance team member will reach out to you for a more detailed discussion on changes you can make to integrate tobacco cessation activities in your practice.
