STANDARD FORM NO. 04 Approved Focelease 2002SI~0 rRMM-00434.WO0300030 14 - Office Memorandum UNITED MATES GOVERNMENT Chief, Medical Staff General Counsel SUBJECT: r.,ledical Support DATE: 26 June 1952 1. In reference to our discussion yesterday of your staff study of 10 June, I am returning it with the following suggestions. 2. While both of your main thoughts have to do with expansion of medical support, they are based on rather different considerations, i.e., the "line-of-duty" ruling is an expansion by interpretation of existing :medical assistance to employees; the payment of medical treatment for dependents of employees and for necessary travel incident thereto is a new recommendation which has, however, some Congressional history, as I men- tioned. The justification in each case is somewhat different. I think, therefore, the problems might better be subjects of separate recommendations, and it seems to me that the policy rulings would properly be in the sphere of the Career Service Committee of which, of course, the DD/A is chairman. Since Personnel is working on a parallel approach., you may want to join your recommendations with theirs. 3. We agree with your line of thou,-,,ht., but feel that the legal aspects should be -iven caref?,l consideration by the determining authority who, in administrative matters of this importance, probably should be the Director. 25X1A9a Enclosure OGC /?P,H : kr Distribution: 2 - O GC Approved For Release, 2Q Qr,tAih tGI4-RD?79094 AoW300oW3oa01-4
