Participants in the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program looking for another year of record low premium increases will likely be disappointed in 2020.
Federal employees and retirees will pay, on average, 5.6% more toward their health premiums next year.
The Office of Personnel Management on Wednesday announced premium rates for 2020 ahead of the upcoming open season, which will run from Nov. 11 through Dec. 9. Participants in the FEHB will have an opportunity to make changes to their health, dental and vision plans ahead of the upcoming benefit year, which begins Jan. 1.
