Health Insurance

Understanding the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHB)

FEHB is an employer-sponsored health insurance program that covers federal employees, retirees, former employees, and their families including children under age 26. 

FEHB offers a wide variety of healthcare plans ranging from Fee-for-Service, Health Maintenance Organization (HMO), Consumer-Driven, and High Deductible Plans. The cost of the plan is based on which plan you select. The employing agency pays about 70% of the premium and the employer pays the remaining portion in addition to any bill received for services rendered not covered by the insurance.
