Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program
The Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program provides Federal employees with many choices of health insurance coverage. Some are open to all eligible employees; some are open only to members of labor organizations; and some depend on the area of residence. They differ in cost and benefits, and employees should study carefully the brochures on all the plans available before selecting coverage. Employees need to consider their family's health care needs, the specific benefits and costs of each plan, and what they can afford to pay. The cost of premiums is shared by the Federal government and the employee. The government pays about 70% of the average premium costs.
The FEHB Program is administered by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). For more detailed information, visit the OPM benefits web page.
