Smoking Cessation

MUN Cares is a smoking cessation initiative offered to current university employees who are ready to quit or are thinking about quitting smoking.

As part of this initiative, the university will cover 50 per cent of the cost of the employee’s smoking cessation aids (one time only) up to a maximum of $300 if they provide confirmation of their participation in a recognized smoking cessation program.

To avail of this initiative employees must:

• participate in a recognized smoking cessation program;
• provide the Human Resources wellness consultant with confirmation from the smoking cessation program of their participation. Please note, it is the employee’s responsibility to contact the program coordinator and have confirmation forwarded to the wellness consultant; and,
• submit the official receipt from the prescription to the wellness consultant. The receipt must have the employee’s name and the cost of the prescription indicated. Please note, photocopies are not accepted.
