Tobacco-Free Discount

Tobacco-Free Discount

If you are eligible for benefits and don't use tobacco (excludes e-cigarettes) or if you complete the Company’s tobacco cessation program, you have the opportunity to save on your premiums for medical, the critical illness supplemental benefit and supplemental life insurance rates.

Upon your initial enrollment into benefits or during the plan's Annual Enrollment period, if you are tobacco-free and complete the annual Tobacco-Use questionnaire, you’ll receive an annual Tobacco-Free Discount of $520 on your medical plan premium.  If you are an e-Cigarette user, you may also indicate "No" for your Tobacco-User status. The discount will be applied each pay period.

If you’re enrolled in a Toys“R”Us medical plan and agree to enroll in the Company-provided Tobacco Cessation Program, Quit for Life, and successfully complete the program by completing 5 calls with a Quit Coach, you'll become eligible for the tobacco-free discount!  (NOTE: You must be benefits eligible to participate in the Quit for Life Program; Enrollment in benefit coverage is not required.)

Any team member who knowingly makes a false certification regarding tobacco usage and/or completing the Quit for Life program may be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment.

PLEASE NOTE: The Tobacco-Free Discount is not available in Hawaii.

Annual Tobacco-Free Pledge

If you elect "No" for being a Tobacco User while taking the Tobacco-Free Pledge, you are certifying that you have not used tobacco products, which include cigarettes, cigars and chewing tobacco, in the last six months, and pledge not to use tobacco products for the next year. The Tobacco-Free Pledge excludes e-cigarettes. Certifying that you are not a tobacco user qualifies you for the Tobacco-Free Discount.

  • Elect “Yes”

-OR-  

  • If you’re interested in enrolling in the Quit for Life program, select “Yes, however, I agree to participate in the smoking cessation program offered through “Quit for Life”, qualifying me for the Tobacco-free discount upon completion.” 
    • Completing 5 calls with a Quit Coach will qualify you for the Tobacco-Free Discount.
    • See the Tobacco Cessation section for details on the program and how to enroll.
    • If you elect to complete the Quit for Life Program, the Tobacco-User rates will be applied until you complete the program.

If you are a tobacco user who has successfully completed the Tobacco Cessation Program - Quit for Lifethe Tobacco-Free discount will automatically be applied to your premiums once Quit for Life notifies the Benefits Team of your completion.
