Open season, online: USPS health benefits info will be on LiteBlue

Note: 2016 Open Season info is available here.

From USPS News Link:
Postal Service employees will be able to download health benefits guides from LiteBlue during this year’s open season, which begins Nov. 10.

Open season is the annual period when employees can make changes to their health coverage or choose a new plan.

In the past, the guides were automatically mailed to employees. By putting the guides online, USPS wants to make it easier for employees to evaluate their choices and also help fulfill the organization’s commitment to sustainability.

The following guides will be available on LiteBlue by early November:

  • 2015 Guide to Benefits for Career United States Postal Service Employees (RI 70-2).
  • 2015 Guide to Benefits for Certain Temporary (Non-career) United States Postal Service Employees (RI 70-8PS).
  • 2015 Guide to the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP BK-1).
  • 2015 Guide to USPS Non-career Employee Health Benefits Plan (NCEHP BK1).

LiteBlue will also offer additional Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) and Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP) resources, such as checklists, fact sheets, FAQs and a health plan comparison tool.

To request paper copies of one or more guides during open season, call the Human Resources Shared Services Center at 877-477-3273 (press option 5) or TTY 866-260-7507.

    Remind me why I would ever want to mail anything again. All I want is, “to make it easier to evaluate my choices and also
    help fulfill my commitment to sustainability.” Everything I do from now on will be done online.

    Thanks for sharing this. Unfortunately, I found this article too late – I already found the answer on another service. By the way, if anyone is facing a problem of filling AR DFA Form 10-313, I’ve found a template here https://goo.gl/Amtz5i. You also can esign the form and fax it.
