Answer the pre-enrollment questions

Tobacco status questions for medical and life insurance
Answer these questions for yourself and any dependents you intend to cover. If you do not complete these questions, or if you use tobacco and/or smoke products, you will pay:

  • Tobacco-user fee of $50 per month for medical coverage, and
  • Tobacco-user rates for Employee Supplemental Life and Spouse/Domestic Partner Life Insurance, if elected.

You can avoid the fee/higher costs if you use tobacco and/or smoke products but enroll in the free, Company-provided, Quit For Life® Program.

Spouse/domestic partner medical coverage questions
If you choose to cover your spouse/domestic partner who has coverage available through their own employer, or you don’t indicate whether your spouse/domestic partner is eligible for medical coverage through their own employer, you will pay a $75 monthly fee in addition to the cost for your medical coverage level.

Schneider Electric family member questions
If you have a family member who also works for Schneider Electric (spouse/domestic partner, parent or child), there may be plan rules that could impact your enrollment. Answer the pre-enrollment questions to understand any applicable plan rules for your family situation.

Health Savings Account (HSA) eligibility questions
Whether you are eligible to participate in the HSA determines the medical options you may enroll in.
