Special Initiatives

We are committed to providing Federal employees, retirees, and their families with health benefits programs that offer choice, value, and quality. We are constantly working to improve this process and streamline the healthcare information provided to you. This webpage explains some of the new initiatives we are introducing and how these initiatives will help you stay informed about our programs and your benefits.

There are a wide range of initiatives on this page. The common goal of each program is to improve your health benefits experience. For instance, our “Going Green” initiative allows you to quickly and easily view your health plan's brochure online, anytime – and reduces paper consumption! Our “Stay Connected” initiative allows you to stay up-to-date with Federal benefits social media and join the healthcare conversation on our Facebook page. Our “Quit Smoking” initiative encourages FEHB Program members who smoke to take advantage of the 100% coverage now offered by all FEHB programs to help them quit once and for all.

These are just a few of HI’s new healthcare initiatives. We hope you will explore all the initiatives on our website to learn more about the exciting opportunities and benefits available to you through the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program.
