OPM Sends 2020 FEHB Call Letter to Carriers

WASHINGTON, DC - The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has sent out the annual Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Call Letter to carriers. The Call Letter describes OPM's policy goals and initiatives for the next plan year. It highlights ongoing policy goals, new initiatives, and negotiation objectives for the FEHB Program.

OPM's continued efforts on affordability and transparency reflect the Administrations' strategic vision for reforming the American healthcare system through choice and competition, as evidenced in the Executive Order 13877, "Improving Price and Quality Transparency in American Healthcare to Put Patients First" (June 27, 2019).

The 2019 Call Letter highlights OPM's long-standing interest in the availability of clear and transparent cost information as important for consumers who want to make more informed decisions concerning their health care.
