Should Employees Be Charged Higher Premiums for Tobacco Use


On Jan. 1, 2011, South Alabama’s new smoking cessation policy goes into effect. The policy will raise health premiums $25 per month for any employees that are regular tobacco users.

A policy of that nature has been needed for some time now. Health care costs can be reduced drastically simply by not using tobacco, and policies like the newly introduced one at South could be good motivation for current tobacco users to quit.
