A lively day
A trade association of FEHB plans, which I represent, prepared a white paper explaining the adverse impact of the Senate bill's $6.7 billion annual insurer fee and the 40% excise tax on FEHB plans. Read it here. The paper was publicized today at a press conference organized by the National Association of Letter Carriers, the American Postal Workers Union, and the Communications Workers of America, among others -- details here. The press conference was reported by CBS News, the Washington Post, and Govexec.com.
