Can I pay FEDVIP costs with pretax money?

Active employees must premiums them with pretax money (unlike in health insurance, in which that is optional). You can use money from your health care flexible spending account to pay co-payments and deductibles, but not premiums.

Retirees must pay premiums with after-tax money and are not eligible for flexible spending accounts.
