How is OPM ensuring compliance with the prohibition against the use of Federal funds to provide and administer health plans that offer elective abortion coverage?

OPM has notified all issuers on the DC SHOP of the requirement to segregate Federal funds in order to ensure that no portion of the Government contribution towards the health care premium for a Member of Congress or congressional staff goes toward the cost of providing or administering elective abortion services. Issuers have been asked to follow the same segregation requirements as they do for the individual Exchanges, found in 45 C.F.R. §156.280.
