Don't forget to fill out a tobacco affadavit

Employees looking to keep down health insurance costs have until Sept. 30 to turn in their physician engagement form and complete the online tobacco affidavit.

APS employees and spouses/domestic partners who have health insurance through the district can keep insurance costs down by turning in a physician engagement form and completing a tobacco affidavit by Sept. 30.

Completing these steps will keep insurance costs from going up $25 a month ($300 a year) for individuals or $50 a month ($600 a year) for employees and their spouses/domestic partners in 2017:

Steps to save money:

1. Have your health provider send in a physician engagement form that verifies you have completed a preventative health exam sometime between Jan. 1, 2015, and Sept. 30, 2016. Qualifying exams include:

Send questions to
  • Women’s/men’s annual visits
  • Visits with specialists such as endocrinologists, oncologists, OBGYNs
  • Preventative dental or vision exams if you are unable to schedule an appointment with your primary care physician within the allotted time frame.

2. Complete a tobacco affidavit. Go here to complete the tobacco affidavit. If you are a tobacco user, you will be encouraged to complete an online tobacco cessation program in order to qualify for the wellness incentive.
