Reduce Medical Premium Plan Year 2011

Note for 2012

The information on this page is for the remainder of 2011. The Tobacco-free Affidavit for 2012 will be available during Open Enrollment, November 7 - 18. Employees will be able to sign and submit the affidavit online when making their medical plan selection. $25 per month for an employee or spouse ($50 for both) who do not use tobacco will be deducted from the employee's contribution to the medical plan.


In 2011, an additional premium according to salary level was added to the base medical premium amount. Employees and covered spouses/domestic partners have the opportunity to reduce or eliminate this additional premium by completing specific activities that promote healthy behaviors and health improvement. If these activities are completed, the employee pays only the base premium amount.

Employees who have not completed a biometric screening can contact Human Resources for information about the opportunity to reduce their premium by completing this activity.
