Why is this not covered...Seems like the $135 a month is a lot cheaper than the long term treatment for Heart Diseas, cancer...etc. Any suggestions??

I claimed mine under my FSA plan at work. BCBS GA doesn't pay for it either!

I work for a health insurance company, and they generally don't cover Chantix. It's because it's not considered a life-sustaining medication, plus it's relatively new. In a few years, I'm sure more companies will start covering it.

My Anthem plan allows for a 50.00 co-pay, I quit w/Chantix in 3 days...Im on day 96 w/o even a craving. This is a miracle drug.
