Tobacco users: Get a jump start on your tobacco attestation

If you are a tobacco user and want to earn your State Health Plan wellness monthly premium credit for 2022, you don’t need to wait until Open Enrollment. 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 contact your provider first to make sure this service is offered; if it is, you’ll need to bring instructions for your provider to ensure your FREE visit is billed correctly. Please print attached instructions (PDF).

You must complete tobacco cessation counseling session by Nov. 30, 2021, to earn your premium credit.
