Vapers may soon pay more for health insurance


NEW YORK (NEWS10) — Some health insurance companies will be charging people who vape the same rate as traditional smokers, but vapers say it is not the same as a cigarette.

Vaping can contain nicotine, but vapers said e-cigarettes contain no tar and less chemicals than cigarettes.

Insurance companies said that doesn’t matter, and they will classify vapers as smokers.
