Through negotiations in the APWU Contract the Postal Service is paying 95% of the Consumer Driven Option Plan premium . PSE’S are eligible for the APWU Health Plan’s Consumer Driven Option after a PSE completes one (1) year of service and offered at the non-postal rate with the Postal Service paying 75% of the premium and becoming eligible for the APWU Career status rate when you complete one year of service as a career status employee along with one full year in the FEHB Program as a subscriber.

This year our premiums were kept lower, very competitive and excellent service compared to other health plans in the FEHB Program.
