The House Appropriations Committee site has posted information on the FY 2018 Omnibus Appropriations bill, which has bipartisan Congressional and White House support. Here’s a link to the text of the Financial Services appropriations section of the bill which includes FEHBP related appropriations. The FEHBlog has confirmed that the bill includes the three traditional FEHBP appropriations measures — the abortion coverage restriction (Secs 613 and 614), the contraceptive coverage mandate (Sec. 726) and the prohibition against applying the Federal Acquisition Regulation’s cost accounting standards to FEHBP contracts (Sec. 611).
