Affordable Care Act and government payment of FEHB


Q. I understand that, as a retiree enrolled in the Federal Employees Health Benefits program, I will still be covered by FEHB under Obamacare. However, will I now have to pay the whole premium, or will the government continue to pay the share of the premiums?

A. Nothing will change. The government will continue to pay its share of the premiums.
