    • For new hires, within 60 days from the initial date you add your dependent(s).
Answer the 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 Quit For Life® Program.
Answer the 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.

Answer the Health Savings Account (HSA) eligibility questions.

Whether you are eligible to participate in an HSA determines your medical options.


Carefully review and complete your benefit elections for 2020.

  • If you elect a CDHP + HSA option, you must elect a contribution amount for your HSA contributions to begin January 1, 2020. However, you can add, stop or make changes to your HSA election anytime during the year.
  • You must elect a contribution amount for the Health Care/ Limited Use Health Care and Dependent (Day) Care Flexible Spending Accounts if you wish to participate in 2020.
Confirm your elections.
