The Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program offers eligible federal employees a broad selection of health plans to choose from. In fact, FEHB actually offers the widest selection of health plans in the country. These health insurance policies typically cover portions of procedures and medical expenses, including prescriptions, and they typically have a deductible and a co-pay.
However, even with health insurance, an overnight stay at a medical facility can cost up to $1,000 just to satisfy copays and deductibles, not to mention any surprise medical bills that could come later. Extended hospital stays can create the most out of pocket costs to the insured and regardless of what type of health insurance plan you have, it will not cover everything at zero cost to you.
Hospital indemnity plans can help cover those out of pocket costs associated with hospital stays due to sickness, accident or maternity. A hospital indemnity plan is not health insurance, but it makes health insurance better.
