Tribal Employers Benefits & Premiums

 

2014

Eligible employees who enroll in FEHB and/or FEGLI will continue to receive coverage providing the necessary premium payments are made during the period of employment with the eligible employer  and either 1) the tribe or tribal organization carries out an Indian Self Determination and Education Assistance Act ( ISDEAA) program OR 2) the urban Indian organization performs functions pursuant to Title V of the Indian Health Care Improvement Act (IHCIA). Premium payments must be made to the appropriate trust fund for each program (FEHB/FEGLI) held at the Department of Treasury. Tribal employers provide payroll deduction services for their tribal employees and ensure that the full amount of the premium is available to the paymaster when withdrawal is made from the bank account, designated by the Tribal employer.

Rate Charts

In the tables below, you can find the monthly premiums, the total premiums, and the minimum amount your tribal employer must pay for each health plan (this amount is the same amount that Federal agencies contribute for their employees). Be sure to check with your tribal employer as there are some tribal employers who may choose to pay a larger portion of your premiums (up to 100 percent).
