In certain 2022 FEHB schemes, the Self Plus One alternative will be more expensive than what is obtainable with the Self and Family plan.
If you and your partner are enlisting for a 2022 Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) package in the coming year, you might be shocked to hear that certain schemes in the FEHB plan offer a lower cost for the Family choice than the Self Plus One alternative.
The United States Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has produced a compilation of the FEHB package for 2022 with a greater entrant premiums share for the Self Plus One enlistment package than for the Self and Family enlistment. There are ninety-eight in total.
The FEHB package’s Self Plus One plan provides for the enlistee and one qualifying close relative up until the age of twenty-six, which could be a partner or kid. The Self and Family plan covers the enlistee and all the qualifying relatives.
