Premium Discount Programs


PEIA offers discounts for being tobacco free and having an advanced directive/living will.

Tobacco-Free Discount

If you've been tobacco-free for six months, report your status on Manage My Benefits and have your premium reduced $25 a month for single coverage and $50 a month for family coverage under PEIA PPB Plans A, B and C, Humana the Special Medicare Plan. If you have family coverage, all members of your family must be tobacco-free for six months to be eligible for the discount. If you quit now, six months from now your premiums can be reduced. Optional life insurance premiums also are discounted for tobacco-free members.

If you want to quit using tobacco, we offer the following benefits:
  • An office visit with a physician twice per 12-month period for smoking-related counseling.
  • Nicotine patches at no cost to the member; both the deductible and the copayment are waived on nicotine patches when prescribed by a physician and purchased at a network pharmacy.
  • All other prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) tobacco cessation products after deductible with the applicable generic, preferred or non-preferred copayment, depending on their status on PEIA's Preferred Drug List.

No need to enroll in a program. When you're ready to quit, just schedule a visit with your doctor to discuss quitting and get a prescription for any covered over-the-counter product or prescription medication to help you quit.

Go to Nicotine Replacement Therapies.

Members may use the tobacco cessation benefit three times per lifetime. This includes previous attempts.

Only members paying the "tobacco-user" premium have access to these benefits.

Advance Directive/Living Will Discount

Active employees covered by PEIA PPB Plans A, B or C and retirees covered by PEIA PPB Plan A, Humana or the Special Medicare Plan who notify PEIA on Manage My Benefits that they have executed an Advance Directive/Living Will are eligible for the $4 monthly discount. An Advance Directive/Living Will is a legal document for making known your wishes about end-of-life care or what medical treatments you desire. It also can be referred to as a health care directive or physician’s directive. Please do not send PEIA a copy of your Advance Directive/Living Will.
