From USPS News Link:
Are you confused by the premium category rate changes for next year’s Federal Employee Health Benefits Program (FEHB)?
If so, here’s what the Postal Service wants you to know.
- Category 1. This category is for career American Postal Workers Union, Information Technology/Accounting Service Center, National Postal Professional Nurses and National Rural Letter Carriers Association employees.
- Category 2. This category is for career National Association of Letter Carriers, National Postal Mail Handlers Union and Postal Police Officer employees.
All non-bargaining employees who fell under FEHB category 2 in 2016 are under the non-postal (federal) premium rate category for 2017.
Career non-bargaining employees have paid the same premium rates as federal employees since 2015.
The Open Season LiteBlue site has additional information about FEHB.
