Reminder: Tobacco Cessation Program

Health Partners Plans (HPP) would like to remind providers that per MA Bulletin 99-18-10 titled “Enrollment of Tobacco Cessation Providers,” an individual or entity must be approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) as a Tobacco Cessation Program (TCP) in order to provide Tobacco Cessation Counseling (TCC) services. 

This communication is to remind our in-network providers that any TCC services rendered to our members are subject to denial if a provider or entity is NOT an approved TCP.

Below are the steps to follow to enroll:

*Please note that HPP will receive the PROMISe Number identifying an individual or entity as a TCP directly from DHS once all steps are complete.

HPP has developed a policy on the Tobacco Cessation Program (TCP). Please visit to review the policy (RB.027.A).

If you have questions, please consult DHS Bulletin 99-18-10 or contact our Provider Services Helpline at 1-888-991-9023 (Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.).
