THE OHIO TOBACCO COLLABORATIVE:
A PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP

The Ohio Tobacco Collaborative is a unique public-private partnership that provides commercial carriers, employers, and third-party administrators with access to tobacco cessation services at rates typically reserved for public health. Employees of these companies (and covered family members), carriers or third-party administrators are eligible to receive services from the Ohio Tobacco Quit Line, which provides one-on-one tobacco cessation telephone counseling and nicotine replacement therapy.

As of February, 2016, nearly 4 million Ohioans have access to the Ohio Tobacco Quit Line because their employer or health plan joined the Ohio Tobacco Collaborative. The Ohio Tobacco Quit Line also continues to serve pregnant women, the uninsured, and Medicaid callers not enrolled in a managed care plan. All other callers are referred back to their health plan or employer for the cessation services that the plan or employer are required to provide under federal law.
