As FEHBP carriers put final touches on 2023 plans, you can start researching today
The mystery of the 2023 Federal Employee Health Benefit Program premiums will not be unmasked for several months still, but if you remember the old Scooby Doo cartoon, the Mystery Machine crew is about to get its first clue.
FEHBP carriers, new and old ones, have until May 31 to submit to the Office of Personnel Management their benefit and rate proposals. OPM then will use the next several months to complete benefit and rate negotiations. In its carrier letter from February, OPM says its timeline to get benefit negotiations done is July 31 and rate negotiations completed by mid-August.
