  1. Slightly different scenario from the previous FEHB post:

    My FERS-employed husband retired under FERS in April 2017. I am the FEHB sponsor for him and me.

    Can I drop my FEHB, have my retired FERS husband re-enroll in FEHB? If so, will I also be covered under his newly re-enrolled coverage? He was covered for five years prior to retirement.
