Surcharges

Get the best price for your benefits and avoid surcharges when you follow these healthy steps.

2021-2022 Wellness Requirement

If you and your spouse/domestic partner are enrolled in a Michaels full-time medical plan, you each need to complete an annual physical between May 1, 2021 and June 30, 2022 to avoid paying a $25 per paycheck/$650 for the year surcharge per person on your medical premiums beginning in August 2022.

Be Tobacco Free

If you and/or your spouse/domestic partner use tobacco, including e-cigarettes and non-nicotine vaporizers, $25 per paycheck/$650 for the year will be added to your medical premiums beginning in July. You can’t use tobacco products for at least six months to be considered tobacco-free, and you can only change your status during Open Enrollment.
