Federal Employees Health Benefits

The Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program is the nation's largest employer-sponsored health benefits program. The FEHB Program is administered by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM).

It provides healthcare coverage to 8.2 million federal employees, retirees, and dependents.

Effective January 1, 2017 all FEHB plans are required to cover Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) for the treatment of autism. For more information, please see ABA Coverage in FEHB for 2017: Questions & Answers on the OPM website.

If you are covered by an FEHB plan that does not provide coverage for ABA, please contact us at advocacy@autismspeaks.org.

To the best of our ability, this information is accurate and up to date, but it is up to the consumer to investigate fully before making any decisions regarding health care coverage.
