Delaware issued Bulletin No.72 on September 30, 2014. The purpose of this bulletin is to inform all insurance companies that write health
insurance coverage in Delaware that health plans will be considered to be in compliance with the ACA preventive services requirements if they cover screening for tobacco use and two quit attempts per year. The guidance also reiterates that plans must not include cost-sharing for these treatments, and that plans should not require prior authorization for any of these treatments.
