Federal government employee health coverage

UnitedHealthcare works with the federal government through the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program to provide government employees, annuitants and their families with quality health care coverage. When you choose our plans, you can enjoy flexible, customized coverage that offers greater choice and control over your health care decisions.

Who’s eligible for coverage?

Federal employees can get Federal Employees Health Benefits unless your position excludes you. How coverage is applied may be based on a variety of factors related to your position. Visit the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to learn about the FEHB Program, compare plans and more.

You can also contact your employment or retirement office if you need help with choosing a plan or enrollment.
