Prudential's Classification of E-Cigarette Users is Changing on October 21st
As you are aware, vaping has been at the center of the news over the past few months and linked to a few deaths and multiple illnesses. There have been warnings from the FDA, federal government and some states banning the use of flavored e-cigarettes. Prudential took a stand a few years ago when e-cigarettes started gaining popularity to treat them similar to the way they assess the use of cigars, pipes, chewing tobacco, etc. Prudential treated e-cigarette users as non-smokers and offered Non-Smoker Plus as the best class.
With the recent attention, Prudential has decided to change and classify e-cigarette vaping as a smoker. Effective with applications dated 10/21/2019 and later, users of e-cigarettes will be treated as smokers and be treated the same as the cigarette smoking guidelines.
