What clinicians can do

There are many ways that a pediatric practice can deepen their impact on family tobacco use and the secondhand smoke exposure of children. Practices can:

  • Bill for providing tobacco control services for parents. Consider, when appropriate, up-coding from 99212 to 99213, with a diagnosis code of 989.84 (toxic effects of tobacco) as a secondary diagnosis
  • Work with local, state and national agencies to increase the tobacco control services available in the area
  • Serve as family tobacco control experts for other practices
  • Work with city councils to increase the number of smoke-free spaces
  • Team up with local members of the AAP, AAFP and other medical organizations to increase awareness of tobacco control issues
  • Participate in tobacco control studies
  • Write letters to landlords to support buildings in going completely smoke-free. Download letter templates here:
