If I am a designated congressional staff person with DC Health Link coverage and during the calendar year my position changes so that I am no longer an employee of the “official office,” can I select coverage from the same plans offered by OPM to other federal employees?

Official office” staff designations are made on an annual basis during the designation period for the following calendar year or upon hire, so a mid-year transition would not change your eligibility.  Employment in a non-“official office” designated staff position during a subsequent designation period would allow you to select coverage under an OPM-contracted FEHB plan during that Open Enrollment period, but you would continue your DC Health Link coverage through the end of the calendar year.
