Ken Hall Appointed to Key OPM Advisory Board Post


General Secretary-Treasurer Ken Hall was recently appointed as a member of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management’s (OPM) Multi-State Plan Program Advisory Board where he will serve as the sole representative from the labor movement.

The OPM is working to offer more than 200 Multi-State Plan (MSP) options in 36 states and the District of Columbia, on the Health Insurance Marketplace. MSP coverage is high-quality health insurance backed by the OPM. The MSP program was created by the Affordable Care Act to drive competition.

MSP options ensure that Americans have access to high-quality health insurance plans with reliable benefits.

“It is a great honor to serve on the board and offer our union’s insight on health insurance matters,” Hall said. “I look forward to being a voice for working families and helping our country formulate policies that help American workers.”

The purpose of the MSP Program Advisory Board is to exchange information, ideas and recommendations regarding the administration of the program, including plan design, branding, network adequacy and other topics.
