Federal employee health benefits applications are now being accepted for reservists!
Reservists currently activated are eligible to enroll in Federal Employee Health Benefits (FEHB) to obtain coverage for themselves and their eligible family members (as defined under applicable law and explained at http://www.opm.gov/insure/health/faq/family.asp) within 60 days of this announcement. Reservists who are not activated may enroll in FEHB within 60 days of any future activation.
To learn more about current FEHB plan information, visit http://www.opm.gov/insure/health/planinfo/index.asp.
To enroll, please complete and return a signed Health Benefits Election Form (SF-2809), located at http://www.opm.gov/forms/pdf_fill/sf2809.pdf, to FEMA-HC-Reservists-Benefits@fema.dhs.gov, or fax your enrollment to 540-504-2144 ATTN: Reservist Benefits. If you send your completed form by email, be sure to password-protect the form, as it will contain sensitive information (Social Security number, date of birth, etc.).
Enrollments will become effective on the first day of the first pay period that begins after the date OCCHCO receives an appropriate request to enroll. For those Reservists currently properly enrolled due to another basis for eligibility, enrollment will continue automatically and no additional action is required.
