2014 Checkbook Guide to Health Plans for Federal Employees and Annuitants

The 35th edition of Consumer's  Checkbook Guide to Health Plans for Federal Employees and Annuitants rates more than 200 health insurance plans available to federal employees and retirees, including a dozen national plans, health maintenance organization (HMO) options, and high deductible plan options. 

The guide informs how much money they can potentially save by changing -- or by staying in -- their health insurance plan. It summarizes thousands of facts about the plans to simplify the decision process.

Pre-orders for access to the guide -- available at the beginning of the 2013 FEHB Open season (for the 2014 plan year) -- are being taken here: http://www.checkbook.org/newhig2/hig.cfm

Some federal departments and agencies have made arrangements with Checkbook's Guide to offer online access for employees during the 2013 FEHB Open Season.

NOTE: This announcement is a service to our readers.  My Federal Retirement receives no remuneration from the publisher of Consumers' Checkbook guide.
