Important healthcare benefit information for federal employees
Federal Employee Health Benefits and Healthcare Reform
As it stands today only those federal employees who are members of Congress and their ‘official staff’ will be required to enroll in health insurance through the newly created healthcare exchanges.
All other federal employees will not be required to utilize the healthcare exchanges and their healthcare options will remain very similar to what they have historically had. Of course the provisions that all health insurers are required to follow will be in effect for Federal employees on 1/1/14 such as out of pocket maximums.
