Spouse Equity Provisions Under The FEHB Program

The Spouse Equity provisions of law allows the former spouse of a Federal employee or annuitant to enroll in The Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program if he or she: 1) was covered under FEHB as a family member at some time during the 18 months before the marriage ended; 2) has not remarried before reaching age 55; and 3) has a qualifying court order (a court order that awards the former spouse a portion of the employee's or retiree's annuity benefit or a survivor benefit based on the employee's or retiree's Federal service).
