Key FEHB Facts

  • Coverage continues each year unless you make a change
  • There are no waiting periods and no pre-existing condition limitations
  • All nationwide FEHB plans offer international coverage
  • The government pays about 70% of the premium cost
  • You’re saving money on premiums since they are pre-tax (premium conversion)
  • You are automatically under premium conversion unless you elect to waive it
  • Open Season is an annual event that allows changes to FEHB


General Information



Use Employee Express to enroll, change, and cancel your FEHB coverage during Open Season and for some qualifying life events. If you do not see your event available in Employee Express, contact your Benefits Specialist for assistance.
