The Tobacco-Free Incentive of $40 per month per person is available to 1) active employee subscribers and their covered spouses and 2) non-Medicare retiree subscribers and their covered non-Medicare spouses. Qualifying members must be enrolled in an MCHCP medical plan, and not have the TRICARE Supplement Plan.
Members who are tobacco-free, meaning they have not used tobacco in the past three months and will not use tobacco, can complete the Tobacco-Free Promise form.
Members who are NOT tobacco-free can complete the Quit Tobacco Promise form. Members can download a Quit Tobacco Road Map through their myMCHCP account or MCHCP will mail them one. The Quit Tobacco Road Map is a self-help guide with resources and tips to improve chances of quitting.
The Incentive begins the first day of the second month after the required steps are completed. Members who complete the required steps before Nov. 30, 2018, will begin receiving the Incentive on Jan. 1, 2019.
For newly eligible members, the Incentive may begin on the same day that medical coverage is effective, so long as the member completes the necessary steps, as described above, within 31 days of their medical coverage effective date. If these required steps are not completed within 31 days of the medical coverage effective date, then the Incentive will begin on the first day of the second month after the steps are completed.
MCHCP plans include 100% coverage for preferred quit tobacco medications and over-the-counter nicotine replacement therapy with a prescription.
