President Biden signed the Postal Service Reform Act of 2022 (PSRA) into law in April 2022. Since then, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), in conjunction with the Postal Service, has been working to implement a new Postal Service Health Benefits (PSHB) Program, as required under the new law. PSHB is a unique, separate program within the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program, which OPM will administer. Coverage under the PSHB Program will be effective January 1, 2025.
Attached are fact sheets regarding the PSHB Program for active employees and postal annuitants.
UPMA was instrumental in passing the PRSA and continues to work closely with the Service and OPM in its implementation. I want to personally thank UPMA Retired VP Charley Peters for his hard work on these documents.
