Also, both employees and retirees may newly enroll in the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program, where the available plans will stay the same. As with the FEHBP, current enrollment continues for those who do nothing, subject to changes in a plan’s coverage and costs.
However, if you want a health-care flexible spending account, a dependent care account or both next year, you must make an election even if you already are enrolled. The maximum is rising by $50 to $2,650 in the former, while the cap on the latter will remain $5,000. FSAs are available only to active employees, not to retirees.
