Michigan Tobacco Quitline Resources for Health Care Professionals

The Michigan Tobacco Quitline offers free information and referral to all Michigan residents who want to quit using tobacco. Qualifying residents also may receive free one-on-one coaching and nicotine replacement therapy to help them quit. The Quitline is funded through the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and is operated by the National Jewish Health, the premier medical and research institution focusing on respiratory diseases in the United States.


Attention Providers: Three Fast Ways to Refer Patients to the Quitline

Once you've identified a patient who uses tobacco, but is ready to quit within the next 30 days, referral to the Michigan Tobacco Quitline is quick and easy using one of three available options:

  • Web Referral — for patients without nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) contra-indications;
  • Fax Referral — for patients with NRT contra-indications; and
  • eReferral — to utilize electronic health record (EHR) technology.

Visit the Provider Referral page on the Michigan Tobacco Quitline website to learn how to do it.
