OPM Proposed Rules on Waiver of Requirements for Health Care Continuation during Retirement

Filed under: Federal employees, Healthcare — Fuguerre @ 6:24 am

The Office of Personnel Management has proposed a revision to regulations under which it will waive the eligibility requirements for a federal employee to continue coverage under the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program as a retired annuitant. [Proposed Reg. 890.108]  Current regulations list specific situations where OPM will not waive FEHB eligibiity requirements, such as when the individual’s retirement is based on disability or an involuntary separation, or when the individual had been incorrectly advised by the employing office. The proposed regulations would eliminate those specific situations, providing OPM with greater flexibility in the waiver process.  Comments on the proposed regulation should be made by 10/6/2006.
