Happy Leap Day!

Because leap day gives us an extra workday this year, the FEHBlog decided to offer these quick hits:

  • If you don’t feel like reading OPM’s call letter for 2017 benefit and rate proposals (last Friday’s post), you can read this Govexec.com article which hits the highlights. 
  • The FEHBlog’s Workshare Comparison program broke when he tried to compare the current summary of benefits and coverage template against the newly proposed template.  It finally dawned on the FEHBlog that he should have checked out Timothy Jost’s blog which does break down the changes here.  
  • HHS released a raftload of ACA related rules today. 
  • The Dickson blog highlights several popular prescription drugs that will be eligible for generic competion this year.
