N.J. Marketplace Insurers Don’t Deliver Full Suite of Anti-Smoking Drugs (NJ Spotlight, Reporter Andrew Kitchenman)

NJ Spotlight investigates how only one of the five companies offering insurance through New Jersey’s federally operated marketplace covers all seven of the anti-smoking medications mandated by the Affordable Care Act. This information comes from a report issues by the American Lung Association.

Executive Director Karen Blumenfeld is interviewed in the article and says insurers should be covering all of the medications at no or low cost.
