Employees who are tobacco users and want to earn their monthly premium credit for 2022 don’t have to wait until Open Enrollment to take action. Between now and
Nov. 30, 2021, tobacco users can attend a tobacco cessation counseling session to reduce their monthly premium by $60 per month in 2022. Sessions are available through a CVS MinuteClinic or a Primary Care Provider’s office. To ensure the premium credit for 2022 is received, tobacco users who participate in a session will need to use eBenefits to submit the office visit summary and will attest as part of the online enrollment process during Open Enrollment.
This action is ONLY for tobacco users who want to reduce their monthly premium in 2022. If you are NOT a tobacco user, you will simply attest to that online during Open Enrollment.
More information is available in the August issue of the North Carolina State Health Plan Member Focus newsletter.
