The PSHB Program is required by statute to begin in January 2025 and will be the health benefits program available to Postal Service employees, Postal Service annuitants, and their eligible family members. Further, Medicare-eligible Postal Service annuitants and their Medicare-eligible family members will be required to enroll in Medicare Part B as a condition of enrollment in PSHB.

There are several statutory exceptions to the Medicare Part B enrollment requirement, including current Postal Service annuitants and their family members who are not enrolled in Part B, Postal Service employees who have reached the age of 64 and their family members, Postal Service annuitants and their family members residing abroad, and Postal Service annuitants and their family members eligible for VA health care or Indian Health Service services.
