Frequently Asked Questions Insurance

I have just returned from active military duty and am still enrolled in my FEHB plan. I am also covered under transitional TRICARE for 180 days after my discharge. May I cancel my FEHB coverage?

If you are under premium conversion (see www.opm.gov/insure/health/faq/premconversion/index.asp), IRS rules govern when you may cancel your FEHB. You may cancel within 60 days of the date you are restored to a civilian position or have another Qualifying Life Event that permits cancellation (see Health Benefits Election Form, SF 2809, at www.opm.gov/forms/pdf_fill/sf2809.pdf Adobe Acrobat Version [848 KB]), or during the next FEHB Open Season. If you are not under premium conversion, you may cancel at any time. In either case, you should be aware of the consequences of cancellation as described in the following question.
