How do I enroll?

You can enroll using the Health Benefits Election form (SF 2809) or perhaps, through an agency self-service system such as employee Express, MyPay, Employee Personal Page, or Employee Benefits Information System (EBIS). Contact the Human Resources Office (HRO) of your agency for details.

Your SF 2809 can be processed by your HRO and Payroll Office. According to enrollment guidelines, they will determine your effective date of coverage, complete the bottom portion of the form, make the appropriate payroll premium deductions, and forward a copy to the Federal Employees Health Benefits plan you chose.

The plan will process your health care information and send you a health care identification card. If you do not receive an ID card or need to check the status of your health care enrollment, contact the plan or your HRO. Once you are enrolled in the plan, you do not need to reenroll each year.
