Happy 50th Anniversary to the FEHB Program!
The Federal Employees Health Benefits Program became effective 50 years ago today as a result of Congress enacting the FEHB Act of 1959. About ten years ago, Abby Block, who was then OPM's Assistant Director for Insurance Programs, prepared an excellent presentation called FEHB Past Present Future which looks back at the early years of the FEHB Program. It's hard for me to believe that I started working on FEHB Program matters back in 1983. Hopefully the FEHBlog will help you keep up to date.
