Open Season activity

The Federal Times reports this evening that “Open season for federal employees to enroll in or change their health insurance closed on Dec. 14, and OPM has projected that 600,000 FEHB enrollment transactions were processed.  The figure surpasses 2014’s mark of more than 430,000 transactions processed and was aided by the inclusion of the new Self Plus One policy for smaller households, officials said.”  Last Spring, OPM had indicated that as many as 1,000,000 enrollees were eligible to drop down to self plus one.
