Members of Congress and other civilian federal employees can choose from a set of private health insurance offerings negotiated by the Office of Personnel Management. One little-noticed provision of the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) instructs the same Office of Personnel Management to negotiate at least two such health insurance policies open to all Americans. They will then compete in the marketplace with other private health insurance. Unlike Medicare, these won’t be government-run plans, but the hope is that they will be similar in policy to the coverage members of Congress get, which is excellent. The New York Times published an article on this Saturday.
