Details About This Benefit:

Choosing the right health plan is one of the most important decisions you have to make. Rising costs and changing benefits don't make it an easy one. The Checkbook Guide has for 38 years provided federal employees and annuitants with rankings of available health insurance plans by estimated out-of-pocket costs, taking into account premiums, catastrophic limits, and estimates of likely additional costs for medical expenses of every kind. 

FEDVIP Dental and Vision plans are also rated in the Checkbook Guide.
