Many federal retirees and their survivors are just fine without Medicare, if they have one of the federal health plans.

So who are these people, and what are those plans?

Today on Your Turn, David Snell from the National Active and Retired Federal Employees talked about best buys for retirees.

The health insurance hunting season begins Monday.

Later in the show, Federal Times senior writer Sean Reilly talked about what the election may mean for feds, the consequences of falling off the fiscal cliff, and the latest on the U.S. Postal Service plans to slim down and stay alive.
