- Some Medical HMO options will not be offered in 2021. As a reminder, these HMO options are not bargained for and have changes to monthly contributions and/or plan provisions, review them carefully.
o IMPORTANT If your current HMO option is not available in 2021, you will automatically be enrolled in a company self-insured option with the lowest contribution amount unless you actively enroll.

- Tobacco Use: Whether or not you are a tobacco user, you must take action during your enrollment window to avoid the Tobacco User Surcharge. If you don’t use tobacco, change to non-smoker status when you enroll. If you and/or your spouse/partner use tobacco products, a surcharge of $60.00 per month, per person will be applied. To eliminate the surcharge, participants may enroll in a mobile cessation program with 2morrow Health through Castlight. This can be done during the Annual Enrollment process. If a participant successfully completes the cessation program by December 1, 2020, no surcharge will be applied for 2021. If completed after December 1, 2020 but before December 31, 2020, participants may incur a surcharge for January 2021 due to administrative/timing issues, however, this charge will be refunded as soon as administratively feasible. If you complete the program any time after December 31, 2020 but any time before July 1, 2021, you can still eliminate a partial, prorated surcharge amount.

- (New for 2021) Working Spouse/Partner Surcharge: You must take action during Annual Enrollment to certify that your spouse/partner does not have medical coverage available from a current employer. If you enroll your spouse/partner and your spouse/partner has access to medical coverage through a current employer, a $100 monthly surcharge will be applied. Be sure to check the correct status to avoid the surcharge.
