Membership and Education


John Johnstone, M.D., a Richmond cardiologist, had expressed his frustration about the lack of coverage for smoking cessation counseling and treatment for his patients. Senate Bill 89, which was passed by the legislature in 2017, requires insurers to cover treatments approved by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force for smoking cessation. The bill was a KMA priority.
