Collaborative Medicaid Survey

Across the country, tobacco use rates among Medicaid members are higher than for the general population of tobacco users. Improving Medicaid cessation benefits or improving the level of use has become a focal activity for many state-level tobacco control programs and their partners. As of May 2011, 19 of 23 states responding to a Collaborative survey reported that they were working on Medicaid benefits, either improving the benefit, improving use, or evaluating the benefit.

  • 13 states reported activity to improve their Medicaid benefit
  • 17 states reported working on Medicaid benefit promotion
  • 7 states reported working on a project to evaluate their Medicaid benefit using claims data
  • 12 states reported working on other Medicaid cessation projects and each described their project
  • 14 states expressed interest in participating in Collaborative time-limited discussion groups
  • 18 states wanted additional information about the published articles on the MA cessation benefit experience and claims data analysis

States reporting activity include: Arizona, CA, Iowa, Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, North Dakota, Nebraska, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Virginia, Vermont, Wisconsin, and Montana. Three additional states reported expressed interest in participating in discussion groups with state colleagues: Illinois, Kentucky, and Minnesota.
