Self+1 FEHB

OPM should allow Self+1 for Federal Employee Health Benefits (FEHB). Dental and Vision insurance options are able to provide Self+1, so there should be no reason that the health benefits would not be able to as well.


By not allowing a Self+1 option for FEHB both the federal employee and the government pay more for insurance than is needed.


In a time where insurance costs are rising and there are pressures to reduce government spending, this seems like an easy fix to a part of government waste.
