    The BluePrint for Health® stop-smoking program is designed to help members quit tobacco in their own way, at their own pace. It's easy, it works, and it's free for all members of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota. Your personalized program begins when you call us toll-free at 1-888-662-BLUE.

    In just 15 minutes, a Quit Coach will develop a quit plan with you, based on how long you've been smoking and any experiences you've had trying to quit. When you're ready, you will schedule four more 10-minute calls with a Quit Coach — all at times that work for you. Plus, you can call in at any time for additional support.

    Every person and every situation is different. Overall, people who talk with Quit Coaches are at least five times more likely to quit for good compared to people who try to quit on their own. Call anytime 7 am - 11 pm Central time, 7 days a week.
