Bill would ax FEHBP in favor of Affordable Care Act plan
Wednesday - 5/1/2013, 12:24pm EDT
Camp and six other members introduced H.R. 1780 last Friday to change the law requiring the executive and legislative branches to use these new plans under the Affordable Care Act.
Camp, the chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, was joined on the three-page bill by Reps. Kevin Brady (R-Texas), Sam Johnson (R-Texas), Devin Nunes (R- Calif.), Charles Boustany Jr. (R-La.) and Aaron Schock (R-Ill.) as co-sponsors of the bill.
Rep. Dave Camp (R-Mich.)
The bill was referred to three committees: Oversight and Government Reform, Energy and Commerce, and House Administration.
Camp's legislation is the latest attempt to change federal employee health benefits.
Another new proposal from Alan Simpson and Erskine Bowles, who led a 2011 commission to reduce the deficit, calls for changing the FEHB into a premium support program.
Simpson and Bowles, who now are leading an organization called the Moment of Truth, also want to move the FEHBP retirement coverage into a subsidy for Medicare premiums instead of wrap-around coverage.
