Q. I have completed the OPM Form RI 79-9 to suspend my FEHB coverage because my wife and I have Medicare Part A & B and we also have TRICARE for Life. I would like to know If I can fax the signed copy of the form to the Office of Personnel Management and, if I can, what the fax number is. Otherwise, what is the address that I can mail the form and supporting documents (copy of the Medicare cards) to?

Q. I am a retired federal employee that kept my health benefits, which is BCBS Standard, after retirement. My husband is retired military and we are covered under Tricare Prime also. I want to know if my current BCBS coverage will satisfy the Part B plan when I switch to Tricare For Life. I get the deer in the headlights look when I talk to the Tricare people.

Q. How do I suspend my health insurance coverage? I will be eligible for my Air Force Reserve Retirement (100 percent VA health care and later TRICARE), Social Security (Medicare health coverage) and my annuity as a VA Medical Center employee (FEHBP). When I become eligible for TRICARE health coverage, I desire to suspend my civilian coverage and use TRICARE as primary and Medicare as secondary.
