Federal Government Employee's Health Insurance
      #232098 - 10/08/07 01:30 PM

I have just been hired by a branch of the Federal Government and although I have yet to go through orientation, I understand that there are around 15 different health insurance plans to choose from. My current private employer only has one plan. I feel very fortunate in that my co-pay for my meds is only $65.00 a month. I would really like to keep my costs to a minimum so are there any other Federal employees out there who could advise me on which health insurance plan to choose? Thanks!

I work for the federal government too...and I was going to ask this very same question because I just got diagnosed. I am currently on Aetna Open Access HMO but I don't know if it is good as far as co-pay and what not because I haven't gotten to that point yet. I would be interested in any replies you get.

When I had to choose a plan I asked my Dr who he preferred.They aren't allowed to tell you but he did say which ones were easiest to work with.It doesn't hurt to ask.
