EMPLOYEE STATEMENT CONCERNING FEHB COVERAGE
DURING NONPAY STATUS
I elect to terminate my health benefits enrollment: I understand that I am entitled to an additional 31 days of temporary extension of
coverage at no cost. During the 31 days, I may convert to a nongroup contract. I understand that such conversion is not automatic and that I
must act on my behalf. When I return to pay and duty status, I will have 60 days to reenroll in FEHB coverage by completing SF-2809.
I elect to continue my health benefits enrollment: I understand that I must pay the premiums for my health benefits coverage which
continues during nonpay status (or during pay periods when my salary is insufficient to cover the required premiums).
I have been called to active duty and elect to continue my health insurance: I understand that the Department will pay the entire premium
for up to 24 months.
If I elect to continue coverage, I must pay the premiums directly or incur a debt in the amount of the unpaid premiums. If I elect to pay directly, I will
make a check or money order payable to Department of State.
Include on the check or money order, your name, social security number, a note that the payment is for "FEHB Premium", and mail to:
Department of State, Accounts Receivable Division, PO Box 979005, St, Louis, MO 63197-9000
PLEASE NOTE: If I elect to incur a debt, or if I elect to pay directly but fail to pay the entire amount due, I will receive a notice stating the total amount
due. The notice will be sent when I return to pay status, my pay becomes sufficient, or I separate from employment. By electing to continue coverage, I
agree to repay the resulting debt in full and to allow the debt to be collected by withholdings from any salary payments to me from the Federal
Government. If the amount due cannot be withheld in full from salary, it will be recovered from a lump sum payment of accrued leave, income tax
refunds, amounts payable under my retirement system, or any other source normally available for the recovery of a debt due the United States.
During nonpay status, I can be reached at the following:
