Tobacco cessation programs are available to UVA employees, their spouses and dependents over the age of 18 who participate in the UVa Health Plan.
We are excited to announce that starting January, 2014, the UVa Health Plan will apply a Non-Tobacco Discount to the health plan premiums of those who are non-tobacco users. All adults covered by the employee’s policy must be non-tobacco users in order for the employee to receive the discount. Employees and their covered adult dependent(s) must be tobacco free for at least 12 months to receive the Non-Tobacco Discount. One of the best things you can do for your health is to quit. The University of Virginia supports those efforts and has programs in place to help you break the habit.
More information on the Tobacco Discount can be found at:
