Most FEHB plans will see benefit and rate changes for 2016. Some plans are dropping out of the program and others are changing their service areas or coverage options. It is wise to review your coverage during this period to decide what coverage and premium best suits your needs for the upcoming year. You cannot enroll, change your enrollment, or cancel your coverage in these programs outside the Open Season unless you experience a Qualifying Life Event.
A QLE is an event deemed acceptable by the IRS that may allow eligible participants to change their participation election outside of an Open Season. For example, marriage, birth of a child, divorce, or loss of other group health insurance coverage. For additional information, please contact the Tribal Desk at Tribalprograms@opm.gov.
You can find out if your FEHB plan is terminating coverage in your service area or is leaving the FEHB Program here.
You will continue to be covered by your present health insurance plan, unless your plan is dropping out of the FEHB or reducing its service area. However, your benefits, premiums, or coverage options may change. You can not enroll, change your enrollment, or cancel your FEHB coverage outside the Open Season unless you experience a Qualifying Life Event.
