Monday, Nov. 13 marks the beginning of the 2017 Federal Employees Health Benefits Program open season. According to a new GAO report on FEHBP, as of 2015, 85 percent of federal workers and 90 percent of retirees were enrolled in the program. FEHBP is the largest employer-sponsored health insurance program in the country, providing coverage to about 8.2 million people in 2016.
Two-thirds of those participants were enrolled in one of the two options offered as part of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Associationís nationwide fee-for-service plan.
