Did you know that employees must certify whether or not they (and their dependents) are tobacco users? And, starting with the new plan year in September – vaping and e-cigarettes are included as tobacco use for certification. Tobacco users pay a monthly premium of $30 per user (maximum $90). Quitting tobacco now could not only make you healthier, it could save you money.
And, learn about the Choose to Quit program offered by ERS. The Employee Assistance Program (a free benefit that includes counseling for a range of topics, as well as resources) is another great resource. Learn more here.
