Frequently Asked Questions Insurance

If I am a designated congressional staff person with SHOP coverage, do I continue that coverage if I transfer to another Federal agency (e.g. DoD, DHS, etc.) or am I able to select from the same plans offered by OPM to other Federal employees?

If your new position is FEHB-eligible, you will be able to select coverage from the same plans offered by OPM to other Federal employees. You do not need to wait until Open Season to enroll in an FEHB plan because your move to a new Federal agency constitutes a Qualifying Life Event.
