There is an overwhelming body of evidence to support tobacco control interventions. These interventions are effective, cost-effective, and produce a return on investment. Yet there is tremendous political resistance to widespread implementation of these interventions. Those states and nations that have implemented effective strategies have dramatically altered the burden of tobacco related illness. New paradigms of tobacco control are emerging including better approaches to treatment, harm reduction strategies, and electronic cigarettes.

Health Plans and ACOs may be missing opportunities to improve health status of their members and lower costs by failing to align with the local and national tobacco control strategies. Presentation at NGS Payors Summit" Public Health Perspectives of Accountable Care Click here
