Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB)
The Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) program is an umbrella that encompasses a number of different carriers and plans. Your own situation and health care needs, as well as those of your family, will dictate which plan is best for you. Again, it’s all about understanding your options so that you can choose the one that maximizes your benefits while reducing your costs.
As you look forward to your transition to retirement, it is still important to know the requirements for this option. To keep your coverage in retirement, you must be enrolled for the five years prior to your retirement date, which also includes time that you spent under TRICARE.
