Health insurance fully covered


Q: I remember reading that in 2017, 100 percent of the health insurance premiums will be paid for federal retirees. Not sure if I read ALL federal retirees or just postal service retirees. However, I am unable to locate any information on this. Can you clarify whether or not this is factual?

A: You can’t find any information about this because there isn’t any. If you did indeed read this somewhere, it was written by someone whose mind had blown a gasket.
