Q. I am a 58-year-old retiree under CSRS with continued coverage under Federal Employees Health Benefits for family. I am now about to be employed full time in my state school system, which offers health benefits that seem better than my coverage under FEHB. If I select to stop deductions for FEHB to utilize the state coverage, will this terminate my ever going back to FEHB if I decide to drop my state health plan?
A. If you drop your FEHB coverage while retired, you wouldn’t be able to re-enroll at a later date.
