Q: My husband, a federal Defense Department employee, keeps mentioning how the new health reform bill will cause us to have to pay tax on the FEHB premium (our portion and the portion the government pays?). I try to keep up with the new changes, but I really don’t know what he is talking about. Can you clarify?
A: There are provisions in the law that will phase in increased costs on certain health care plans. As I understand it, these costs will be passed along in the premiums you pay.
