I applied for a position several months ago with the DoN.  The day after I interviewed for the position my wife got sick and was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.  Since then I was called back in for a 2nd interview and 3 days later given a Tentative Offer.  The next phase is the Final Offer which I know is coming very soon (matter of days).  This brings me to the FEHB. 
We (Wife + 2 boys 13 and 12 respectively) have had are own insurance (Medical, Dental, and Vision) but it was already costing us all together $1006.00 per month.  I have to be honest, I probably would not be asking for input if we were all healthy and would have just chose plans upon the start of employment. 
Is there anyone that has went through a life changing medical event recently or in the past
who is willing to share how they selected FEHB?
Thank You
Ed Zurndorfer
