Knoxville-area full-time faculty and staff should keep an eye on their mailboxes this week for the next issue of For Your Benefit, the one-stop shop for important UT employee information from HR. The newsletter provides employees with information about deadlines and other benefit opportunities throughout the calendar year.
The Spring 2009 issue of For Your Benefit features information on taking the Certified Professional Secretary (CPS) exam, UT’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP), changes in health care costs and more.
Details relating to the new tobacco use surcharge for health care coverage that will go into effect Jan. 1, 2010, were unavailable at press time for For Your Benefit. Magellan Health, UT’s EAP provider, is offering free smoking cessation webinars throughout the month of May.
In additional to the memo circulated with the last round of pay checks, more information on the tobacco use surcharge and quitter’s refund programs can be found at http://www.state.tn.us/finance/ins/tobacco.html.
For more information on Magellan Health’s webinars as well as how the tobacco use surcharge and quitter’s refund programs are being implemented at UT, contact Mary Lucal at 974-1909.
