OPM is requesting agencies and other administrators (retirement systems, OWCP, etc) to accept belated FEHB enrollment changes through January 2009. Because an FEHB enrollment change could affect decisions regarding enrollment in the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP) and the Federal Flexible Spending Account Program (FSAFEDS), eligible enrollees also may continue to make enrollment choices for these programs through January 2009, using Open Season websites, call centers or via agency human resources departments.
You can find more information about the belated enrollment opportunity in the Belated Enrollment Opportunity FAQs [33 KB], Benefits Administration Letter (BAL) [35 KB] Notice to Employees [14 KB].
