Executive Summary

Twenty-nine percent of labor union health and welfare funds provide coverage for smoking cessation treatments, with 84% of these funds covering nicotine patch therapy and 47% covering nicotine gum, Harvard researchers report in September American Journal of Public Health. "Of plans offering coverage, 68% did so as a prescription benefit, with 8% planning to drop coverage of the nicotine patch and gum because they had become available OTC," say Elizabeth Barbeau et al. Researchers surveyed union officials, health and welfare fund administrators affiliated with the Laborers' International Union of North America, which represents 800,000 construction, health care, service, public sector and environmental workers
