Members of Household

Medical travel protection for those you love

Our members serve worldwide and build families in many different ways. So we are pleased to extend our “Caring for Your Health Worldwide” pledge to members in our household including family, domestic partners, au pairs and nannies, and friends.

These plans are ideal for those family members and friends not eligible under your Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP). The plans also provide coverage for U.S. citizens spending extensive time with you overseas or foreign nationals needing healthcare coverage while residing with you in the U.S. or while traveling outside their home country.
