If you have elected OWCP, then send the election letter to OPM with a copy to OWCP. Specifically ask that OPM transfer your FEHB enrollment to OWCP.

OWCP will make the deductions for your health insurance from your compensation. But, there also is some paperwork between OPM and OWCP that needs to occur as well.

Send the original letter and election form to OPM. The OPM address is probably in Boyers, PA, but consult your OPM paperwork to be sure.

A copy should go to OWCP and include a copy of the election form as well.
