OPM AHIP FEHBP Carrier Conference Day 2
Today's session was sublime for FEHBP junkies like me. OPM announced that the call letter for 2010 benefits and rates proposals will be issued in "a week or so." OPM provided a bevy of statistics on the FEHB Program. The OPM Inspector General's office and carrier representatives discussed an innovative joint task force to combat fraud against the Program . Finally, OPM arranged for a panel of CMS representatives to discuss the new mandatory insurer reporting program known by the shorthand name Section 111. This program goes live for group health plans on April 1, 2009.
