A Good Deal for Federal Employees

This article is more than 12 years old.

NPR's Morning Edition ran a thoughtful story on the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, or FEHBP, often held up as the gold standard of health insurance. Reporter Joseph Shapiro finds the best part of the program is that it offers consumers broad choices in coverage. For instance, in the Washington D.C. area alone there are 16 different health plans on offer.

Meanwhile, President Obama spent Sunday morning trying to sell health reform to a skeptical public, insisting that under any new law, health insurance will remain affordable, according to the New York Times.

This program aired on September 21, 2009. The audio for this program is not available.
