(a) An insured individual may cancel his/her Basic insurance at any time by filing a
waiver of Basic insurance coverage. An employee files with the employing office. An annuitant files with OPM or other office that administers his/her retirement
system. If still employed, a compensationer files with the employing office, and if not
still employed, with OPM. The waiver is effective, and the insurance stops, at the end of the pay period in
which the waiver is properly filed. Exception: an individual who has assigned his/her insurance under subpart I of
this part cannot cancel the insurance.
(b) An individual who cancels his/her Basic insurance automatically cancels all forms
of Optional insurance.
