Frequently Asked Questions Insurance

I am a Member of Congress or congressional staff enrolled via the DC SHOP. I plan on separating from service later in the year. Does my enrollment last the whole year or can I cancel when I switch jobs?

Because coverage under the DC SHOP is employer-sponsored coverage, your plan coverage will terminate when you leave your job. You may be eligible for Temporary Continuation of Coverage via an OPM-contracted FEHB plan. Please contact your benefits officer for more information and view the OPM Losing & Ineligible for FEHB webpage.
