FEHB Rates Rising by 7.4% on Average

The enrollee share of premiums in the FEHB will rise 7.4 percent on average for 2016 for non-postal employees and for retirees. Within that average, the enrollee self-only coverage is rising by 6.5 percent and for self and family coverage by 10.7 percent--the latter in part reflecting the upcoming availability of self plus one enrollment, which is projected to drain away many current family enrollees who have only one eligible family member.
