Federal Employees Health Benfits (FEHB) Program: FEHB allows you to choose from among Consumer-Driven and High Deductible plans that offer catastrophic risk protection with higher deductibles, health savings/reimbursable accounts and lower premiums, or Fee-for-Service (FFS) plans, and their Preferred Provider Organizations ( PPO), or Health Maintenance Organizations (HMO) if you live (or sometimes if you work) within the area serviced by the plan. https://www.opm.gov/insure/health/

Federal Employees Group Life Insurance (FEGLI): FEGLI provides group term life insurance consisting of Basic life insurance coverage and three options. If you are a new Federal employee, you are automatically covered by Basic life insurance and your payroll office deducts premiums from your paycheck unless you waive the coverage. https://www.opm.gov/insure/life/

Flexible Spending Account Program (FSAFEDS): Lower your taxable income! FSAFEDS offers three different flexible spending accounts (FSAs): a health care flexible spending account, a limited expense health care flexible spending account, and a dependent care flexible spending account. Open Season enrollments are effective January 1 of the following year. Current enrollees must enroll each year as the Enrollment does NOT carry forward year to year.  https://www.fsafeds.com/fsafeds/index.asp

Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program (FLTCIP): The Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program (FLTCIP) provides long term care insurance to help pay for costs of care when enrollees need help with activities they perform every day, or you have a severe cognitive impairment, such as Alzheimer's disease.  https://www.ltcfeds.com/

Federal Employees Dental and Vision Program (FEDVIP): FEDVIP offers supplemental dental and vision benefits to Federal employees. Employees must be eligible for the FEHB Program in order to be eligible to enroll in Federal Employees Dental/Vision Program (FEDVIP).
