SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the ``Repeal Insurance Plans of the Multi-
State Program Act'' or the ``RIP MSP Act''.

SEC. 2. REPEAL OF MULTI-STATE PLAN PROGRAM.

    (a) Definitions.--In this section, the terms ``multi-State plan 
issuer'' and ``MSP issuer'' mean a health insurance issuer or group of 
health insurance issuers that has a contract with the Office of 
Personnel Management to offer multi-State plan options pursuant to 
section 1334 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public 
Law 111-148).
    (b) Program Repeal.--Effective January 1, 2020, section 1334 of the 
Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111-148) shall 
have no force or effect.
    (c) Termination of External Review.--The administration of external 
review pursuant to section 1334 of the Patient Protection and 
Affordable Care Act shall conclude upon the issuance by the Director of 
the Office of Personnel Management (referred to in this section as 
``OPM'') of all final decisions for enrollees enrolled in a multi-State 
plan during or before the 2019 plan year.
    (d) Required Reporting.--Not later than 60 days after the date of 
enactment of this Act, the Director of OPM shall provide the Committee 
on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and the Committee on 
Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions of the Senate and the Committee 
on Oversight and Reform and the Committee on Energy and Commerce of the 
House of Representatives a briefing concerning the efforts of the OPM 
to wind down the multi-State program under section 1334 of the Patient 
Protection and Affordable Care Act. Such briefing shall contain such 
information as may be required, including information regarding--
            (1) the methods of communication OPM and an MSP issuer will 
        use to notify current enrollees that the multi-State plan will 
        not be offered during the next open season, including a 
        timeline of the planned communications;
            (2) a description of how the Director of OPM will work with 
        the Secretary of Health and Human Services to ensure that no 
        plans previously offered pursuant to such section 1334 are 
        offered on State or Federal Exchanges; and
            (3) a timeline detailing how OPM will close down the 
        information technology portal that MSP issuers utilize.
    (e) Conforming Amendments.--

        Affordable Care Act is amended--

                                    (II) by striking ``and a multi-
                                State plan under section 1334,''; and

                        plan,''; and

        shall take effect on January 1, 2020.
