 To amend title 5, United States Code, to lower health care costs for 
 part-time Transportation Security Administration employees and allow 
Transportation Security Administration employees to change health care 
                     plans, and for other purposes.

United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the ``Health Care Opportunities for 
Transportation Security Administration Employees Act''.

SEC. 2. HEALTH CARE OPPORTUNITIES FOR TSA EMPLOYEES.

    (a) Coverage.--Section 8905 of title 5, United States Code, is 
amended by adding at the end the following:
    ``(j) During a national emergency (including a pandemic such as 
that caused by COVID-19) and the 30-day period following the end of 
such emergency, a Transportation Security Administration employee--
            ``(1) if such employee is not enrolled in a health benefits 
        plan, dental benefits plan, or vision benefits plan under this 
        chapter, chapter 89A, or chapter 89B, respectively, may enroll 
        in such a plan; and
            ``(2) if such employee is enrolled in any such plan, may 
        change such enrollment.''.
    (b) Contributions.--Section 8906(b) of such title is amended by 
adding at the end the following:
            ``(5) In the case of an employee of the Transportation 
        Security Administration who is occupying a position on a part-
        time career employment basis, the biweekly Government 
        contribution shall be equal to that of an employee serving in a 
        comparable position on a full-time career basis (as determined 
        under regulations prescribed by the Office). In this paragraph, 
        the term `part-time career employment' has the meaning given 
        that term in section 3401(2).''.
