Are you interested in getting comprehensive health insurance at an affordable price in 2017? The APWU Health Plan is here for you!
The 2016 Federal Employee Health Benefits (FEHB) Open Season starts today, November 14, 2016, and runs through December 12, 2016. During Open Season, eligible federal employees, federal retirees, and tribal employees can change their health plans. Now is a great time to evaluate your insurance plan, compare, and get the most for your health insurance dollars.
The APWU Health Plan encourages you to compare federal health plans before you make this important decision. The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has a website to allow federal employees and retirees to do just that. FEHB Open Season Online https://www.opm.gov/healthcare-insurance/open-season/ allows you to compare FEHB plans, learn about enrollment, and premiums. To check if your doctor is in network just got to www.apwuhp.com. Our Open Season hotline is 800-PIC-APWU for any questions you may have. Learn about our Consumer Driven Option online at www.welcometouhc.com/apwu or by calling 1-800-718-1299.
Are you currently an APWU Health Plan Member? Many eligible APWU Health Benefits Members could save money on their monthly premiums by switching to Self Plus One enrollment from family coverage. The Self Plus One enrollment type was new in 2016 and many did not change their coverage to cover just two family members. Still have questions about Self Plus One, visit www.opm.gov/selfplusone for more details.
Contact your HR Department today to switch plans before the Open Season Deadline on December 12th. Postal Employees can change enrollment online at https://liteblue.usps.gov .
Remember, if you do not want to change your present insurance coverage, your current coverage should continue automatically.
