Tobacco Users: Get a Head Start on Earning Your Premium Credit for 2021!

If you’re a tobacco user and want to earn your State Health Plan monthly premium credit for 2021, you have until Nov. 30, 2020 to complete your tobacco cessation counseling session.

Remember, tobacco users can complete a tobacco cessation counseling session at a CVS MinuteClinic or a Primary Care Provider’s (PCP) office for FREE to earn a lower premium for 2021! Please note, if you combine your tobacco cessation visit with another service, there may be a copay.

This means:

  • If a CVS MinuteClinic is not convenient, you can see any provider that provides tobacco cessation counseling. You should call first to make sure your provider provides this service.
  • Waivers will no longer be given to members who live more than 25 miles away from a CVS MinuteClinic since members can now see a PCP for this service.

This action is ONLY for tobacco users who attested during Open Enrollment that they were tobacco users but wanted to earn their premium credit for 2021.

Before your visit, print off instructions for your provider to ensure your FREE visit is billed correctly.
