The Price of Smoking is About to Go Up Significantly.

If you smoke or otherwise use tobacco, starting in 2014 you can have your insurance premiums increased by up to 50%. BUT, there is some good news on the horizon. There is a proposed rule that would exempt tobacco users from this premium increase IF you enter a smoking cessation program. So, if living a longer, healthier life is not enough incentive to quit smoking; maybe the prospect of paying 50% more for your federally mandated insurance will push you along. The price of smoking is about to go up significantly!
