Tobacco Use Change

An additional $30 premium is added to your medical plan cost if you or spouse covered as a dependent on your medical plan uses tobacco or vaping products. The maximum charge for use is $30 a month added to your health premium. Life insurance and long-term disability premiums are also higher for tobacco users.

If an employee or covered spouse identified as a tobacco-user becomes a non-tobacco user for three consecutive months, the tobacco or vaping product use status can be updated through Workday by choosing "tobacco use change" as the benefit event type.
