The health insurance plans are quite extensive with both Nationwide and local health plans available. You can elect
from Preferred Providers, Health Maintenance Organizations, or Fee-For-Service plans. The Government
pays up to 72-75% of the plan’s cost for you, with you paying the difference. Premium costs are taken
out of pre-tax salary. You cannot be disqualified for health insurance due to a pre-existing condition.
When you enroll, coverage begins within a two-week period to include coverage for pre-existing conditions.
Also available are Dental/Vision plans, Flexible Spending Accounts and Health Savings Accounts. There
is an annual “open season” to allow you to change health plans. You can also take your health insurance
coverage into retirement. Retired employees pay the same group premium as current employees.
