Frequently Asked Questions Insurance

What happens if I am a Member of Congress or designated congressional staff and I do not sign up for a SHOP health plan by the end of Open Season?

After the end of the 31-day extension of your FEHB plan coverage, you will no longer have health insurance with a Government contribution. Failing to enroll in a SHOP health plan will also result in a break in coverage that may preclude you from being able to enroll in a FEHB-contracted plan at the time of retirement. You may be able to enroll after Open Enrollment if you experience a Qualifying Life Event. Please contact your administrative office for more information.
