How to enroll in an APWU Health Plan as a postal support employee

Postal support employees (PSE) are non-career postal employees. As part of the 2011 Collective Bargaining Agreement, the APWU has negotiated for PSEs to have access to the FEHB Program.

As a PSE, you can enroll in the APWU Consumer Driven Option and the United States Postal Service pays 75% of the premium. With other plans, you would be responsible for paying 100% of the premium.

As a PSE, you cannot use PostalEASE to enroll. If a form directs you to PostalEASE, you will not have an option to enroll in the APWU Consumer Driven Option. To enroll in the plan, download and complete the forms on this page.
