BlueChoice HealthPlan understands it’s hard to stop smoking. Nicotine is a highly addictive drug, and many people find they need help quitting tobacco. Great Expectations® Quit Smoking can help you kick the habit. We provide information and resources to support you as you become tobacco-free.
You can take advantage of the Smoking and Tobacco Self-Care Center, filled with articles, self-assessments and links to useful websites.

You can also access information about the South Carolina Tobacco Quitline, a great, free resource for members who live in South Carolina. Or use this county-by-county listing of hospital-based programs that teach in-person quit smoking classes. And if you’re interested in using medication to help you in the quitting process, check out the prescription drugs and nicotine patches that are now covered under your BlueChoice HealthPlan prescription benefits.
