Welcome, and congratulations on your new job. As you’re getting settled in your new role, one of the first things you’ll have to think about is your health plan. You have 60 days from the day you start working to select a plan. MHBP offers three unique plans, so we have a plan that will fit your needs.

It’s important to compare. Depending on where you live, there are as many as 250 plan choices in the Federal program. And yearly premiums can vary by more than $10,000 between the highest cost and lowest cost plans.

But first, a few quick facts. For more than 50 years, MHBP has been trusted by Federal and postal employees and retirees. Let us earn your trust, and we know we will, because of the consistently high ratings we receive each year in OPM’s satisfaction survey from current MHBP members.

One feature that stands out is our customer service. We have dedicated MHBP representatives available to answer your questions 24 hours a day, seven days a week, except major holidays. You can reach a representative when it’s convenient for you at 800-410-7778.

MHBP offers worldwide coverage. In the 50 United States, we are backed by the strength of a nationwide network from Aetna. There are no referrals required to see a specialist with any MHBP plan. We offer a 24/7 nurseline whenever you have a medical question, and we offer many programs and tools to help you reach your personal health goals. We offer virtual visits through your computer, phone or mobile app so you can meet with your doctor, dietician, social worker or psychologist. When you use Teladoc, you pay nothing for consultations. Those with the Consumer Option must meet their deductible first.

With low copayments for most services, you know what you’re going to spend. For example, generic drugs from a network pharmacy are just $5. This plan also includes wellness rewards to help you get and stay healthy as you reach your personal health goals. When you need additional services like diagnostic tests or even surgery, the Standard Option’s comprehensive coverage has your back.

We have three plans so you can choose the one that suits your needs: a Standard Option, a Consumer Option and a Value Plan. For a more detailed look at MHBP plan options and coverage, you can watch our plan comparison video. We also offer dental and vision coverage at low group rates, and you can join any time. Give us a call at 800-254-0227 to answer your questions.

We realize this is a big decision for you and your family. That’s why we strongly encourage you to compare benefits and rates. Once you’ve done that, we feel confident that MHBP will have a plan for you. You can also check us out on the web at MHBP.com, or give us a call at 800-410-7778 to answer your questions.

We look forward to welcoming you to the MHBP family.
