The Phenomenal Success of the Mass. Tobacco Cessation Program

The Phenomenal Success of the Mass. Medicaid Anti-Smoking Program. When Massachusetts set up its 2006 Medicaid-based benefit to help members quit smoking, it shelled out about $183 dollars per person — and wound up saving three times that in one year alone. Total savings on money not spent on heart-related hospitalizations: $14.7 million. You know what they call that in business? Freakin’ amazing. [CommonHealth | PLoS ONE]
