SMOKING CESSATION

The EX Program’s Online Smoking Cessation That Saves Lives - And Costs

 

Paying for tobacco use cessation treatment is the single most cost-effective health insurance benefit for adults that can be provided to employees."

- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

 

The EX Program

Although smokers have been pushed out of sight by smoke-free laws, the costs of smoking remain staggering.  In addition to higher healthcare costs associated with employees that smoke, lower workforce productivity—from smoking-related absences to distractions due to nicotine cravings and smoking breaks—is also negatively impacting business success.
 
This is why Wellable is partnering with the EX Program, a digital smoking cessation program from the Truth Initiative.  The EX Program has helped more than 800,000 tobacco users develop the skills and confidence to successfully quit.

TEXT MESSAGING PLATFORM

Unlike other text messaging programs that use static content, the EX Program’s robust text messaging platform delivers interactive and tailored messages based on how the tobacco user has—or hasn’t—engaged with the program.  Research has shown that by delivering relevant, timely, and compelling series of messages, EX Program’s text messaging program increases the number of participants who set a quit date and complete steps in the EX Plan.
