The U.S. Office of Personnel Management has renewed its Federal Employee Health Benefit program with TakeCare Insurance Company for 2022, the company announced today.
Open Season for the FEHB 2022 benefit year will be from Nov. 8 through Dec. 13.
As the health insurance provider covering the largest share of federal civilian employees, retirees and family members through the FEHB program in the region, TakeCare is held to health industry-leading performance standards set by OPM and the U.S. Office of the Inspector General.
“During our forty-plus year relationship with the FEHB program, we at TakeCare have worked hard to provide our valued federal members access to high quality, innovative health insurance services, comprehensive health education and wellness benefits, and optimal health care delivery options including exclusive access to the FHP Health Center on Guam” said Arvin Lojo, TakeCare health plan administrator.
