Importantly, MHAs reappointed to a second 360-day term are offered coverage through a selection of health plans that includes the Value Plan and the Consumer Option, both offered by the Mail Handlers Benefit Plan…

SUPPLEMENTAL DENTAL & VISION PLANS

All FEHBP eligible mail handlers also are eligible to enroll in supplemental dental and vision insurance programs offered through the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP).
