The Dutch Health Care Insurance Board (College voor Zorgverzekeringen or CVZ for its name in Dutch) commissioned RAND Europe to perform a qualitative review of the wishes, needs and opinions of smokers on the merits and implementation procedures for a reimbursement program to support quit smoking. Focus groups were organised with representatives of three target populations, i.e. smokers with low socio-economic status, immigrants and smokers with a medical reason to stop. The smokers involved all had tried to stop with differing success and would welcome such a scheme, but realised the definite need for strict rules and procedures. They felt insurers would need to be the focus for information and implementation of such a scheme. Further research into the effectiveness of methods could help to establish which methods merit reimbursement. For now all methods should be eligible, but a definite limit to the amount or number of attempts needs to be included. Note: This report is written in Dutch with an English language Summary.
