New ALA fact sheet on tobacco surcharges

Wednesday, February 13, 2013  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov
The American Lung Association has developed a new fact sheet on tobacco surcharges. As you may know, starting January 1, 2014 increased tobacco surcharges permitted under the Affordable Care Act could make it too expensive for smokers to afford health insurance. This fact sheet outlines the ALA’s opposition to these surcharges and references the role state legislatures and insurance commissioners can play in limiting or eliminating them.
