OPM Advisory Board Application Announcement

The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is looking for Multi-State Plan (MSP) enrollees or enrollee representatives to serve on the MSP Advisory Board. Enrollee representatives may include public health and/or healthcare professionals (including providers, navigators, and assisters) or members of consumer advocacy groups. Health insurance issuers or representatives of health insurance issuers will not be considered for membership.

They hope to establish a board that represents all segments of society, including, but not limited to, individuals with disabilities; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) people; rural or medically-underserved populations; racial or ethnic minorities; and members of tribes or tribal organizations. For that reason, they encourage all individuals who believe they have relevant expertise or a perspective that would be useful to offer to apply. 

The announcement is open until March 16, 2015. Membership is uncompensated. However, travel costs – transportation, lodging and meals – to attend at least two meetings annually in Washington, DC, will be covered.
