Q. My husband is a retired federal employee. I am covered under his Care First, Blue Cross/Blue Shield Federal Employee Plan insurance. I will turn 65 in a few months and he is 66. Will we be able to get Medicare without his premiums increasing?

A. Whether or not you are covered by Medicare, your Federal Employees Health Benefits premiums will remain the same.
