Employee health and wellness is a priority for Jim Ellis. The Jim Ellis Wellness Program is designed to help you improve your health with incentives when you complete simple tasks. When you comply with the requirements by the due date, you avoid potential surcharges.
Surcharges are deducted post-tax on a quarterly basis. Upon compliance, the surcharges are discontinued at the beginning of the following quarter of compliance.
To avoid the separate $25 per month surcharge, you must complete the non-tobacco affidavit or be an active participant in tobacco cessation by the deadline.
If you use tobacco products and participate in the smoking cessation program, the tobacco surcharge is waived. Free tobacco cessation program is offered through Truth Initiative and more information on this will be coming soon.
Note: Tobacco products include all forms of tobacco, including but not limited to cigarettes, e-cigarettes containing nicotine, vapes containing nicotine, and chewing tobacco.
