Happy New Year!
The FEHB contracting year always kicks off with the U.S. Office of Personnel Management call letter which was released this year on April 4. The call letter seeks benefit and rate proposals from FEHB plan carriers. The carriers must submit the proposals by the end of May. Ensuing contract negotiations are concluded by mid-August, and then the carriers prepare for the annual Open Season from mid-November to mid-December.
