Tobacco Use Surcharge

To support the health and wellness of our faculty and staff, Emory has implemented a $50 per person monthly tobacco use surcharge on medical plan contributions for employees and their spouses who are covered on the Emory medical plan and use tobacco products.

When you enroll, you must certify online in Self-Service whether or not you and your spouse have used tobacco within the last 60 days. The per person tobacco use surcharge will be waived if:

  • You certify that you and/or your spouse have not used tobacco within the last 60 days; OR
  • You are currently being treated by a physician for a medical condition such as nicotine addiction. In this case, you and your physician will need to complete and return the Tobacco Cessation Physician Affidavit form to the Benefits Department.
