+Based on a comparison of the estimated combined annual premium and cost sharing for a family of four (4) enrolled in the top three plan options with the highest enrollment in the FEHB market in DC, Central Maryland, and Northern Virginia.  Comparison estimate assumes a family of four, with two adults, two children under age 5, and expecting a baby.  Also assumes 10 primary care visits for children, 20 prenatal visits, and one maternity delivery during the benefit year.  Using these assumptions, the family described may save as much as $600 to $3,000 than if the family were enrolled in one of the other plan options included in the comparison.
