Healthy Start 2015 - 15 hours ago | 16 views
Posted: 2/26/15 4:15 PM
Xavier employees who “light up” are reminded that a tobacco user surcharge becomes effective July 1, 2015. The Office of Human Resources (OHR) announced the $30 surcharge as a 2015 Medical Plan change during Open Enrollment:
“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.
Free and low-cost cessation programs are also available. A list of resources is available here.
