Checkbook breaks down health plans

Checkbook’s Guide to Health Plans can help you find the right health plan for you and your family.

To help Postal Service employees compare health plans during this year’s open season, the organization offers access to Checkbook’s Guide to Health Plans for Federal Employees.

The guide has details about all plans available through the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program.

The comparison tool includes information on copays, deductibles, prescription drug costs, and whether dental and vision benefits are included in specific health plans.

Most FEHB plans will see benefit and rate changes for the coming year, some may drop out of the program, and others may change service areas or coverage options. Thus, it is important to check current offerings.

Checkbook has published its annual guide to federal benefits for more than 35 years. This is the fifth year USPS has provided free access for all employees and retirees.

Employees can access the guide through the Open Season LiteBlue page.

Open season, the annual period when employees can change their health coverage or enroll in a new plan, will conclude Monday, Dec. 12.
