USPS Plan to Pull Out of Fed Health Benefits Could Cost Postal Workers

U.S. Postal Service employees may have to choose between higher costs and less coverage under a new health care plan being touted by the agency, according to a government audit.

The USPS plan to opt out of the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program would save the agency billions of dollars annually, the Government Accountability Office found in a new report, but it would likely put postal workers at risk of paying higher premiums, incurring more out-of-pocket costs and receiving less insurance coverage for a variety of procedures.
