Affordable Care Act and re-enrolling in FEHB


Q. I have been on disability retirement for more than seven years. However, because I was working part time with health benefits, I originally opted out of Federal Employees Health Benefits. Now that the Affordable Health Care Act is being implemented, will there be an opportunity for someone like me to opt back into FEHB?

A. No.
