FEHBP open season with Walton Francis

If you are too busy or just not interested in shopping for your 2017 federal health plan? Welcome to a very large club. But it all but guarantees you’ll lose between $1,000 and $2,000 next year by paying more than necessary in premiums and out of pocket costs.

Failure to find the best health plan for you and yours could mean you will shell out an extra $1,000 or $2,000 next year in premiums that don’t get you better coverage or out of pocket costs because your plan has a high deductible or high co-payments. But you won’t know that unless and until you use it. Unless you shop beforehand, which is now. Now through Dec. 14.

Today kicks off our first Your Turn radio show of the year dedicated to finding your best-buys. Federal  benefits expert Walton Francis will be our guest. Francis is the author of  Checkbook Guide to Health Plans for Federal Employees and Annuitants. You can email questions for him to Mike at mcausey@federalnewsradio.com. The show starts at 10 a.m. EST on www.federalnewsradio.com, or in the DC area on 1500 AM. You can also call in during the show at 202-465-3080.

Finally, right after the show (at 11 a.m.) Walt Francis and Mike will switch studios and join in an online chat with people who have registered for our free webinar.

Tell a bored friend or coworker about the program which could save them big bucks next year.
