Q. My wife works in private industry and has her own heath plan. My wife will lose her heath care when she retires. I have a single coverage heath plan as a federal employee. I’ve had the coverage for more than five years. If I retire, can I change from single to family coverage? Or, do I have to be under a family plan for five years prior to retirement to have family coverage in retirement?
A. Yes, you can change from self to self and family during any open season.
