Biggest FEHBP-related surprises of 2015

From the FEHBlog’s standpoint  —

  • Aggressive Chinese hackers create havoc for OPM, several FEHBP carriers, and FEHBP enrollees / federal employees.  
  • Congress delays the Affordable Care Act’s 40% excise tax on high cost employer sponsored plans (a/k/a the Cadillac tax) for two years and suspends the onerous health insurer tax for 2017 on a bipartisan vote spurred by the legislators who helped rammed through the law in 2010.
  • The Self plus one enrollment falls flat despite OPM and carrier communication efforts.
