What are the criteria for temporary employees and employees on seasonal and intermittent schedules to be covered under the FEHB Program?

A non-Postal employee working on a temporary appointment (an appointment limited to one year or less), a non-Postal employee working on a seasonal schedule of less than 6 months in a year, or a non-Postal employee working on an intermittent schedule, where the employing office expects the total hours in pay status (including overtime hours) plus qualifying leave without pay hours to be at least 130 hours per calendar month for at least 90 days would now be eligible for an FEHB enrollment with a full government contribution. 


In other words, employees on temporary appointments and employees on seasonal or intermittent schedules who are expected to work 130 hours per calendar month for at least (the upcoming) 90 days are now eligible for an FEHB enrollment.  See BAL 14-210 and the final regulation Federal Employees Health Benefits Program Modification of Eligibility to Certain Employees on Temporary Appointments and Certain Employees on Seasonal and Intermittent Schedules.
