    Health Benefits At-A-Glance

    Action Required:
    Answer the tobacco question

    Verify whether you use tobacco products; tobacco users pay a $50/month premium surcharge for the medical plan.

    Those who do not answer the question will pay the surcharge.

    Tobacco users have an opportunity to sign up for tobacco cessation classes to avoid the surcharge.

    Action Required:
    Complete HIPAA acknowledgment
     
    Electronically consent that you have read the HIPAA acknowledgment when you enroll in the medical plan. This is similar to the form you would typically sign at a doctor’s office. The HIPAA acknowledgment is located before the Medical Plan section of the enrollment.
