Why doesn’t FEHB offer a Self Plus One option for annuitants or employees?

FEHB law does not permit the Program to offer a Self Plus One category.  Pursuant to section 8905 of title 5, United States Code, “An employee [or annuitant] may enroll in an approved health benefits plan under section 8903 or 8903(a) of this title either as an individual or for self and family.”  The law currently does not allow a Self Plus One option.
