Tobacco Attestation Information

Woman breaking cigarette in halfIf you are an active subscriber on the Base PPO Plan (70/30) or Enhanced PPO Plan (80/20), or a retiree on the Enhanced PPO Plan (80/20) (not applicable for retirees on the Base PPO Plan (70/30)), you can save $60 on your monthly premium by completing a tobacco attestation during Open Enrollment or your initial enrollment into the State Health Plan.

You will find the tobacco attestation opportunity during the online enrollment process, where you may attest to being a non-tobacco user, a tobacco user, or a tobacco user who would still like to earn the credit by completing a tobacco attestation counseling session. If you attest to being a tobacco user but agree to a counseling session, you must visit a Primary Care Provider for at least one cessation counseling session within 90 days of your enrollment. During Open Enrollment, dates may differ.

Please note, if you combine your tobacco cessation visit with another service, there may be a copay.

If you need additional help to quit tobacco, don’t forget that the State Health Plan offers a variety of tobacco cessation resources. Get started today on your journey to quitting tobacco!
