'Quitting' FEHB and re-enrolling


Q. Can a retired employee quit his Federal Employees Health Benefits in retirement for, say, Tricare for Life and Medicare if retired military, and later opt to switch back to FEHB?

A. If you “quit” your FEHB coverage for Tricare, you wouldn’t be able to re-enroll at a later date; however, if you suspended your FEHB coverage, you could reactivate it during any open season, or immediately if, for some reason, you lost your Tricare coverage.
