Filling the need for trusted information on national health issues…

I work for a small business who buys health insurance in the Marketplace and I smoke. Can my company be charged more because of me?

Yes, assuming your coverage is purchased in a state that allows the tobacco surcharge. An insurer can adjust the premiums of health plans sold to small businesses based on the number of workers who use tobacco.
