Insuranceopedia explains Federal Government Insurance

Government insurance doesn't just cover the employee but coverage also extends to expenses for injuries suffered by the employee's family members.

In the United States, employees can avail themselves of the basic life insurance provided by Federal Employees Group Life Insurance (FEGLI). There are optional programs for those who want better insurance coverage, which are more expensive than the basic one but pay a higher benefit for death and injury.

Apart from life insurance, the federal government also has insurance programs for health, retirement, and other concerns that are covered by private insurers. The federal government may also contact private insurers to provide insurance for its employees.
