“Our goal is to provide affordable health benefits for our employees. One major factor increasing healthcare costs is tobacco use. We believe that those who choose to use tobacco should bear that additional cost.”
OHR acknowledges the challenge of “kicking the habit.” Both traditional and high-deductible health plans cover tobacco cessation drugs at 100%. See www.myhumana.com for list of drugs.
