The Postal Service is reminding employees they can use Checkbook’s Guide to Health Plans for Federal Employees to compare their options during this year’s open season.
The guide has details about all plans available through the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program.
The comparison tool includes information on copays, deductibles, prescription drug costs, and whether dental and vision benefits are included in specific health plans.
Most FEHB plans will see benefit and rate changes for the coming year, some may drop out of the program, and others may change service areas or coverage options. Thus, it is important to check current offerings.
Checkbook has published its annual guide to federal benefits for more than 35 years. This is the fifth year USPS has provided free access for all employees and retirees.
Employees can access the guide through the Open Season LiteBlue page.
Open season, the annual period when employees can change their health coverage or enroll in a new plan, will conclude Monday, Dec. 12.
