UC is committed to providing a tobacco-free environment. To support the Smoke and Tobacco-Free Policy and help those who want to quit smoking, the university offers a number of resources for faculty and staff.

All UC-sponsored medical plans provide the following:

  • Prescription nicotine replacement therapies, such as nicotine inhalers, sprays and medications, at no additional cost when prescribed by a physician.
  • Over-the-counter nicotine replacement products are available, at no cost when prescribed by a physician.
  • You can participate in behavioral modification programs to help you quit smoking, but it is not required to receive these benefits.

In addition, some medical plans offer additional resources; copays and program fees may apply. Please consult your medical plan’s booklet or website for more information.

Your campus may also offer local tobacco cessation programs
