Company Profile


In 1948,[2] an organization known as the Government Employees Health Association (GEHA) allowed a small section of Federal Government employees to obtain low-cost group health insurance plans.

In 1954,[3] GEHA expanded its product offerings to include a term life insurance policy. Since that time, a number of insurance plans have been added or changed. Today, CRBG offers a Group Term Life Insurance Plan, underwritten by New York Life Insurance Company, designed specifically to meet member needs.

In 1960,[4] the newly established Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Act of 1959 provided all Federal employees, annuitants, and eligible family members with the opportunity to voluntarily enroll in a group health benefits program with the government sharing the cost of participation. GEHA qualified under this Act and quickly entered into the FEHB Program. Due to name similarities with another insurance carrier, GEHA changed its health plan name to the Association Benefit Plan (ABP).

For over 55 years,[5] the Association Benefit Plan was underwritten by Mutual of Omaha. In 2006,[6] the company name was changed to Compass Rose Benefits Group (CRBG) and eligibility was extended to include all employees of the Intelligence Community (IC). In 2007, Coventry Health Care became the health plan underwriter. In 2008,[7] CRBG extended eligibility to include employees and retirees of the Department of Defense (DoD). In 2011,[8] eligibility expanded once again to include employees of the Department of State. Also new this year, in effort to eliminate confusion, the health plan was renamed from the Association Benefit Plan to the Compass Rose Health Plan. The network of providers also changed to UnitedHealthcare (UHC), which is one of the largest networks of providers and facilities in the FEHB market.[9]
