The American Postal Workers Union (APWU) Health Plan is a national preferred provider organization (PPO) that offers both a fee-for-service High Option plan and a Consumer Driven Option health plan. Both options are open to all employees or retirees covered under the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program. Located in Glen Burnie, Maryland, the Health Plan is a department of the American Postal Workers Union. We employ 200 people to service the 205,000 people covered by the Health Plan.
How a Career Employee enrolls in an APWU Health Plan
All active Postal Service employees who are in the APWU bargaining unit must become dues-paying members of the APWU, except where exempt by law. You will be billed directly by the union after you enroll in your health plan.
How to enroll in an APWU Health Plan if you are a postal support employee
Postal Support Employees (PSE) are non-career postal employees. As part of the 2011 Collective Bargaining Agreement, the APWU has negotiated for PSEs to have access to the FEHB Program.
As a Postal Support Employee, you can enroll in the APWU Consumer Driven Option Plan and the United States Postal Service pays 75% of the premium. With other plans, you would be responsible for paying 100% of the premium.
