USPS Chief Wants Out of Fed Benefits Plan

Monday, 10 October 2011 01:41 PM EDT

The postmaster general wants to get out of the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program that costs the U.S. Postal Service about $7.3 billion a year and establish a separate system.
 
Should Congress approve the plan being promoted by Patrick Donahoe it could save about 10 percent in healthcare costs annually and raise premiums for postal workers, according to the Washington Post’s blog the Federal Eye reported.

The benefits program provides life insurance and health, dental, vision and long-term care. The programs can vary depending on a person’s job, union memberships, and geographic location, according to the Post.

“How do you manage 200 healthcare plans effectively?” Donahoe asked according to the Post. “There should be one plan for the federal government, then we’d really get — not only could we prefund, we’d probably get a refund.”
