Open Season for federal health insurance is underway, and government workers are still choosing their options. There are 15 dental and 8 vision plans to choose from this year, however these plans are often overlooked. Lori Amos, assistant director of healthcare and insurance for the Office of Personnel Management, says that the agency has some insight into plan selection.
“Right now, we do know the number of views… before I left this morning, we had over a million views for our plan comparison tools,” Amos said. “So, people are actually going into the tool; and that’s for healthcare coverage. For dental and vision, about 220 views since we last checked this morning. So people are going in and they’re reviewing.”
