OPM Rule Expands FEHBP Coverage


The Office of Personnel Management is publishing a final rule that would expand Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP) coverage to those on temporary appointments, seasonal employees who work less than six months a year and intermittent employees.

Under the rule, employees in these groups who work a full-time schedule of 130 hours or more in a calendar month and who work for at least 90 days would be eligible to enroll in FEHBP and receive a government contribution for health insurance premiums.

The rule will be effective as of Nov. 16, and all eligible employees—existing workers and new hires- will be able to enroll in FEHBP no later than January 2015.

NTEU had pressed for expanding the federal health insurance program to seasonal employees and some other previously ineligible groups of workers. Earlier this summer, NTEU submitted comments in response to the proposed rule, some of which were incorporated into the final rule.
