The recent string of relatively low premium increases for FEHBP enrollees has resulted from positive market trends, as well as the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, OPM said. ACA -- or Obamacare -- has created more competition that drives down prices, according to OPM officials.

And 4.4 percent is considerably less than 7 percent, isn't it? In case it's unclear to you, that's "reducing cost". Again, from your own link:

In the three years prior to 2012, premiums went up by more than 7 percent annually.
