New Career Employee Virtual Health Fairs 2021
As we get ready for another round of PSE conversions, the Health Plan is here to help. We want to educate the new career employees on APWU Health Plan benefits. As you know, we have two great plans that offer strong benefits for the APWU members and their families.
New career employees only have 60 calendar days to select their health plan. New career employees who were on the USPS plan as a PSE will be automatically disenrolled. PSEs currently on the Consumer Driven Option can remain on this plan to keep those benefits. No further action will be needed.
In order to pay the negotiated APWU Career rate for the Consumer Driven Option the employee must be enrolled in the Federal Employee Health Benefits Plans for one full year as a career employee. The time spent on the Consumer Driven Option as a PSE doesn’t count toward the one year in FEHB.
APWU Health Plan will conduct virtual health fairs exclusively for this conversion. The Member Education department will brief employees on the benefit highlights for both the High Option and Consumer Driven Option plans. Most importantly, there will be a Q&A period to ask the Health Plan staff questions about benefits.
