FEHB suspended?


Q. I am nearing retirement from federal government and have not signed up for the Federal Employees Health Benefits program in more than 10 years. At the time I stopped my medical insurance coverage, who would have the paperwork indicating that the stoppage was suspended or completely removed with my enrollment?

A. As an employee, you could only have enrolled in the FEHB program or canceled your enrollment. You could not have suspended it. A copy of that cancellation would have been provided to you at the time and a copy placed in your official personnel folder.
