If your health screening indicates a "positive" nicotine blood test (cotinine) result, you can still earn the Nicotine Free Incentive if you complete and self-report one of the two eligible alternatives:
- Complete(d) a nicotine cessation program between November 1, 2016 and October 31, 2017; OR
- Have a nicotine counseling session with your primary care provider between November 1, 2016 and October 31, 2017.
- To earn the incentive using one of these two alternatives, you must self-report your Nicotine Free alternative activity at www.myactivehealth.com/som.

Frequently Asked Questions about the Nicotine Free Incentive.
The State Plan offers the incentive program to all plan members and their enrolled spouse/domestic partner. If you think you may be unable to meet a standard of the incentive program, you may qualify for an alternative program or different means to earn the incentive. You must contact the Health Care & Benefits Division (HCBD) as soon as possible at 800-287-8266 or email email@example.com. We will work with you (and if you wish, your doctor) to design a program with the same incentive that is right for you.
Any personal medical information gathered during the course of the incentive program is protected by and will be treated consistent with the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules. A copy of the Plan’s privacy notice is available HERE.
