New Online Smoking Cessation Program Available

An innovative, app-based approach

Tufts Health Plan recently collaborated with the Pivot smoking cessation program to offer commercial members1 who are eligible access to an innovative, app-based approach to cut down on smoking. Pivot for Tufts Health Plan offers members a personalized method to reduce their smoking gradually, instead of quitting “cold turkey.” This program gives participating members the freedom to work on their own schedule and at their own pace, from the safety and convenience of home. 

Pivot for Tufts Health Plan offers members access to virtual, human coaching and immersive in-app games and activities. Participating members can also track their progress with Pivot’s innovative mobile breath sensor, which measures the carbon monoxide level in their lungs. 

Tufts Health Plan selected Carrot Inc., the digital health firm behind Pivot, because of its unique approach to smoking cessation that blends mobile technology with behavioral science and clinical expertise. This new online tool further complements the existing smoking cessation resources and programs offered by Tufts Health Plan.

If you2 are interested in taking control of your smoking, register for Pivot for Tufts Health Plan today to determine if you are eligible.
