Tobacco Cessation Therapies
November 8, 2012 On November 8, 2012, the Newfoundland and Labrador Medical Association (NLMA) released its Position Paper on Coverage for NRTs and Tobacco Cessation Medications. The paper calls on the provincial government to fund tobacco cessation medications and nicotine replacement therapies (nicotine patch, gum or lozenges) for people on low incomes as a benefit under the Newfoundland and Labrador Prescription Drug Program. Newfoundland and Labrador is one of only two provinces in Canada that do not offer assistance for tobacco cessation therapies.
