Q. I am 63 and retired from Tobyhanna Army Depot. I have coverage with Geisinger Health Plan as part of my retirement package. I have Tricare standard, being retired military. How do I drop Geisinger since I receive Tricare at no monthly cost? It makes no sense to pay for one that is close to $300 per month when I have Tricare that has a much lower deductible, and I will have to come under Medicare Part B in the near future. How do I do this?
A. To preserve your options, you’ll want to suspend you FEHB coverage, not cancel it. To do that, go to https://www.opm.gov/forms/pdf_fill/ri79-9.pdf, fill out the form and send it to OPM.
