Welcome USPS Employees

FEP is committed to providing USPS employees, retirees and their families with some of the best health care benefits possible.

Proud to receive conditional approval to participate in the Postal Service Health Benefits (PSHB) Program

The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) announced that the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Federal Employee Program (FEP) is a conditionally approved carrier in the upcoming PSHB Program, so bookmark this page to stay in the know.

What you need to know about the Postal Service Reform Act

You may have heard about the Postal Service Reform Act of 2022. This law does not impact your benefits for 2024. But in 2025, there will be a new Postal Service Health Benefits (PSHB) Program. 

Postal Service Health Benefits Program

The Postal Service Health Benefits (PSHB) Program will offer health insurance to postal employees, retirees and eligible family members starting January 1, 2025.

You can also learn more on OPM’s website here.

What’s next?

Information on PSHB Program health plan options and premiums will be available in October 2024.

What do you need to do?

USPS employees and retirees will choose a health plan in the PSHB Program during 2024 Open Season, running November 11 through December 9, 2024.

Special Enrollment Period for Annuitants

If you are an annuitant entitled to Medicare Part A as of January 1, 2024, and did not enroll in Part B, you and your covered, eligible family members may be able to participate in a special enrollment period (SEP). If you qualify for this SEP, you will receive a notification by April 1, 2024. Those who choose to enroll during the SEP will not need to pay a late enrollment penalty—this will be covered by USPS. Eligibility letters will be sent to annuitants and eligible family members in early 2024. 

Stay informed on the PSHB Program

You can find the latest information on the upcoming PSHB Program, including important dates and FAQs, on OPM’s website.
