Did you know?
As McGill moves closer to becoming a smoke-free campus, you may be eligible for certain smoking cessation products through your Supplemental Health Plan.
The McGill Supplemental Health Plan covers stop-smoking products covered by the RAMQ (patches, gum, lozenges and 2 types of tablets) when obtained with a written prescription from a physician, pharmacist or nurse. Expenses will be reimbursed at the RAMQ's reimbursement level and will be subject to RAMQ coverage limits (duration and quantity). Submit your claims to Manulife as usual.
If you are not a member of the McGill Supplemental Health Plan but are registered with the RAMQ drug plan, expenses for these products will be reimbursed by the RAMQ according to coverage limits.
For more information on coverage of smoking cessation products, visit the RAMQ website.
