• Blue Cross® and Blue Shield® Federal Employee Program (FEP)

  • The Blue Cross and Blue Shield Federal Employee Program has been providing quality healthcare coverage since 1960.

  • About our plan


    For 60 years, the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Service Benefit Plan, also known as the Federal Employee Program—or simply FEP—has provided health insurance to the federal employee workforce. We are proud to have been part of the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program since its inception in 1960. Today, FEP covers over 5.5 million federal employees, retirees and their families across the U.S. and overseas.

    Our members choose FEP because we offer the benefits and coverage they need most, like access to our Preferred provider network that includes more doctors, hospitals and specialists than any other network.

    It’s also because in everything we do, our members’ health and well-being always come first. From our rewarding incentive programs to our innovative tools and resources that put care at their fingertips, they know they can count on FEP to be their partner in health every step of the way. We’re honored to say that this has helped make us the number one health insurance choice for federal employees, and why 99% of our members choose to stay with us year after year.
