Ingredion provides a number of effective and proven tobacco-cessation resources to help you quit. When you do, the company will reward you by offering a reduced premium for medical coverage.
The premium differential is $75 per month for each employee and spouse/domestic partner covered on an Ingredion medical plan. The premium differential will be based upon the answer to a Tobacco Use Attestation on Businessolver.
Under Ingredion’s Tobacco Cessation Reimbursement program, employees and eligible spouses/domestic partners are each eligible for reimbursement up to $300 per year for tobacco cessation services. Eligible reimbursements include hypnosis and acupuncture. E-cigarettes are not eligible.
Employees and covered dependents on Ingredion’s medical plan can enroll in Blue Cross Blue Shield’s Lifestyle Management Program – Tobacco Cessation. You’ll be assigned a health care professional known as a Lifestyle Management specialist. Through telephone coaching sessions, you and your Lifestyle Management specialist will come up with a personalized plan designed to help you reach your goals. During regular coaching sessions, you’ll learn how different choices may affect your health, and you’ll get the support you need. To enroll, call BCBS at 866-412-8795 and choose Lifestyle Management.
