Q: My spouse and I are retired federal employees with an annuity.
I retired in 2001 with 12 years of service. We have had continual coverage with FEHB for the past 40 years. We have the Self & Family plan with my spouse as the member and I am the dependent. I would like to know if I am eligible for coverage under my own self only policy? If eligible, when can I request the change, any time or just during open season?
A: You can only change to a self only policy if your spouse changes his/her coverage to self only at the same time. If that’s what you both want, you can do that during any open season.
