Tobacco Free Policies, part of Breathe Easy NC Program, starting December 1, 2022

Starting Dec. 1, 2022, NC Medicaid Managed Care Standard plans and Tailored Plans will “require contracted providers, not including retail pharmacies, and with the exception of the residential provider facilities, to implement a tobacco-free policy covering any portion of the property on which the participating provider operates that is under its control as owner or lessee, to include buildings, grounds, and vehicles.”
