  Purpose

This study is designed to test the hypotheses that incentives can increase both participation in smoking cessation treatment and resulting cessation rates when they are offered to Medicaid BadgerCare Plus members.


Condition Intervention
Smoking Cessation
Smoking
Nicotine Dependence
Behavioral: Incentives for abstinence and treatment engagement
Behavioral: Attendance incentive

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Subject)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Striving to Quit: Wisconsin Tobacco Quit Line Tobacco Cessation Research

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Abstinence from smoking [ Time Frame: Measured 6 months after enrollment at follow-up assessment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The data will be the biochemically confirmed reports of abstinence for the past 7 days (i.e., 7-day point-prevalence abstinence)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Engagement in treatment [ Time Frame: Measured 12 months after enrollment at follow-up assessment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The primary analyses will compare number of calls completed

  • Cost-effectiveness [ Time Frame: Measured 12 months after enrollment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The primary analysis will contrast the incremental costs of the treatment vs. attendance conditions by computing the Incremental Cost-Effectiveness Ratio (ICER) with regard to attaining 6-month abstinence.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Treatment incentives
Incentives for biochemical verification visits, treatment engagement, and abstinence
Behavioral: Incentives for abstinence and treatment engagement
Treatment incentives - incentives for biochemical verification visits, treatment engagement and abstinence
Active Comparator: Attendance incentive
Incentives for only attending the biochemical verification visits
Behavioral: Attendance incentive
Attendance Incentives - incentives for only attending the biochemical verification visits

Detailed Description:

Aim 1: To determine the extent to which contingent financial "treatment incentives" (i.e., incentives for biochemical verification visits, treatment engagement, and abstinence) versus "attendance incentives" (i.e., incentives for only attending the biochemical verification visits), increase rates of smoking cessation . Participants will be BadgerCare Plus tobacco users who enroll in Wisconsin Tobacco Quit Line (WTQL) services.

Aim 2: To determine the extent to which treatment incentives vs. attendance incentives increase rates of engagement in smoking cessation treatment through the WTQL when offered to BadgerCare Plus members who smoke.

Aim 3: To determine the cost‐effectiveness of the smoking cessation program when paired with treatment incentives and when paired with attendance incentives.

Aim 4: To identify moderating and mediational effects regarding the clinical benefit of incentivized smoking treatment

Aim 5: To determine the reach of an incentivized smoking cessation treatment that depends upon primary care clinic staff, a fax‐to‐quit referral mechanism and a state quit line.
