H.R. 2003, the Ensuring FEHBP Coverage During Shutdowns Act, would designate the officers and employees of the Office of Personnel Management who process Federal Employee Health Benefits enrollments and enrollment changes as emergency personnel. This change would mean that those officers and employees would be required to work during a lapse in appropriation (often called a government shutdown). Under current law, those officers and employees might not be required to work during a government shutdown, but they would be paid for the period of the shutdown when an appropriation is enacted. Therefore, enacting H.R. 2003 would have no effect on either direct or discretionary spending in the federal budget.
