For complete FEHB information, visit: OPM (Office of Personnel Management): Health Benefits. 

You must be on the payroll for at least one day before you are eligible for health insurance.

Your health insurance will become effective the first Monday of the following pay period in which your completed registration form is received.

If you decline coverage at this time or wish to change coverage at a later date, you must either experience a life event or wait until the next open season enrollment held in November of each year. During this time new enrollments and changes in plans or options are permitted. Changes made during open season become effective the beginning of the first full pay period of the coming year.
