Healthcare premiums could be going up for some federal employees. The Senate’s new postal reform bill would change the mix of the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) plan and might leave people out of it.

  • Jessica Klement, Staff Vice President of Policy and Programs for the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association (NARFE), said Congress should wait to move forward with the legislation until the Office of Personnel Management conducts an analysis of its effects on health premiums for the wider federal community.
  • The bill would separate the FEHB Program into a postal employee plan and a federal employee plan, with some exceptions, explained Klement.
  • Klement said NARFE’s biggest concern is the provision allowing postal retirees who have elected not to take Medicare to stay in the federal pool, which could drive up premiums.
