The Office of Personnel Management expects to receive a much higher volume of calls during next year’s Open Season.

That’s because a Postal Service reform bill signed into law in 2022 is moving postal employees and retirees into a different health insurance marketplace from the rest of the federal workforce, starting in January 2025.

OPM Director Kiran Ahuja told members of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee earlier this month that the agency is on track to create a standalone Postal Service Health Benefits Program.

“It’s a huge effort, it’s an aggressive timeline. We have to enroll a little less than 2 million individuals when we have this stood up,” Ahuja told the committee in a March 9 hearing.
