OPM received more than 70 public comments on its interim final rule to create a new postal-only health insurance marketplace for 1.7 million USPS employees, annuitants and eligible family members. The agency accepted comments through June 5.

The agency is creating the Postal Service Health Benefits (PSHB) Program as a separate entity from the Federal Employee Health Benefits (FEHB) program, as required under the Postal Service Reform Act signed into law last year.

The upcoming change has the support of postal unions, federal employee associations and health care providers in the federal marketplace — but is getting pushback from postal workers and retirees who say they have more questions than answers about enrolling in a new plan under PSHB.
