The Office of Personnel Management has finalized a proposed rule (¶70,285.04) revising the Federal Employees Health Benefits Acquisition Regulations. The rule amends FEHBAR 1603.7002 to list a “self plus one” enrollment type in the carrier advertising instructions so that carriers will be required to list all current enrollment types when advertising their health plans enrollment codes and premium rates to enrollees. This change is a technical correction and does not alter current FEHB family member eligibility guidelines. The rule also updates and clarifies the contract clause matrix at FEHBAR 1652.370 to bring the matrix in line with the Federal Acquisition Regulation and FEHBAR contract clauses used in all FEHB Program carrier contracts. OPM made several changes to the matrix in response to comments on the proposed rule. The effective date of the final rule in March 25, 2020. For the text of the rule, see ¶70,283.06.
