An interested entity must contact us at least six months before it proposes to begin offering limited wraparound coverage.

If you are interested in becoming an MSP issuer, OPM requires you to submit a Notice of Intent to Apply (NOIA) to gain access to OPM’s MSP Program Application Portal, where you will complete and submit your application.  The NOIA is not binding; however, you cannot apply without first submitting one.
