September 4, 2013 -- President Obama's budget proposes that health plans covering federal and postal workers offer a third option: Self plus one coverage.

So when would it happen, and how would it work?

On this week's "Your Turn" radio show, David Snell from the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association will talk about the option that would benefit couples without kids.

He'll also discuss a congressional plan, backed by the White House, that would reduce the size of future cost of living adjustments for federal, military retirees and people who get Social Security benefits.
