MAINE RESIDENTS: Tell Your Senator to Override Veto of LD386

Smoking rates among Medicaid members (MaineCare) are more than double that of the rest of the population, and among tobacco users who have never used any cessation products, cost is the most frequently cited reason. This is especially true of the Medicaid population. To get the smoking rate down, we need to make sure that anyone wanting to quit has barrier-free access to proven cessation treatments.

The bill now heads to the Senate where it needs to earn 2/3 of the members present to complete the veto override.

Please write to your state senator today and ask that they vote to override the Governor's Veto of this important quit-smoking benefit.
