As a journalist, I would rewrite the article in a more concise and engaging way. Here is my version:

Retirement expert Reg Jones has over 40 years of experience in the federal government, including serving as an assistant director at the U.S. Office of Personnel Management. He is now retired and currently enrolled in Medicare part A with BCBS Standard (106) as self-plus-one health insurance plan. Jones is considering switching to GEHA High (313) as it may offer cost savings. However, he wonders if this would be a simple switch or if there are any hidden details he needs to be aware of.

Another question on his mind is whether he can switch back to BCBS if he doesn’t like GEHA after the transition period. Lastly, Jones wants to know what percentage of retirees use FEHB and Medicare part A only, without Part B coverage.

According to NARFE, most retirees don’t enroll in Part B because they already have adequate coverage through their FEHB plans. This annual Open Enrollment season provides retirees with an opportunity to switch from one health benefits plan to another without any penalty or delay in coverage. So, if you have questions about your retirement health benefits options, you can reach out to Reg Jones at for expert advice and guidance during this important time of year for seniors.
