Enroll all employees into the VA Health Care System, except for persons whose residence is geographically challenged to travel to a VA Medical Center. Those persons would remain covered by FEHB. Then, a portion of the projected savings from individual agencies' health insurance benefit costs could be redirected to the VA to enhance its services, where needed, for both our veterans and government employees. It would save taxpayer and employees' money, while sending a message of confidence in the quality health care that the government continues to provide.
