How will eligibility be confirmed for purposes of the tobacco-free discount program?

When enrolling in a University medical plan, you will be required to sign a Tobacco Attestation. In order to qualify for the Tobacco Discount, you must certify that you and all dependents covered by a University medical plan:

  • have been tobacco free at least three months prior to the effective date of coverage and will continue to be tobacco free for the plan year or
  • are enrolled in a tobacco cessation program. 

During Annual Enrollment each year, all faculty and staff will be required to submit a new Tobacco Attestation for the upcoming plan year, effective January 1. View the full Tobacco Attestation for more information.
