Will Medicare pay for services to help me stop smoking?

En español | If you use tobacco and you’ve been diagnosed with an illness caused or complicated by tobacco use, or you take a medicine that’s affected by tobacco. Medicare covers up to eight face-to-face visits in a 12-month period. You pay 20 percent of the Medicare-approved amount, plus any deductible.

If you haven’t been diagnosed with a tobacco-related illness or complication, Medicare coverage of tobacco cessation counseling is considered a covered preventive benefit.
