The Emergency Travel Plan coverage described in the booklet, "Association Insurance Programs", dated 31 March 1960 has been expanded to include round-trip travel from any location in the world to points anywhere else in the world for emergencies that involve named persons in the application. a. This concept recognizes that emergencies may occur which affect the employee or the employee's immediate family who are at the post with him. The employee can purchase Emergency Travel Insurance and name himself and/or the other family members with him at the post to provide for the contingency of emergency travel which may not qualify for payment by the Government. For example, the employee may become critically ill and be evacuated to our country or to Government medical facilities at an intermediate location. Normally his travel expenses would qualify for payment under however, the employee's wife would have to assume the travel cost as a personal expense if she wished to be with her husband unless she quali- fied as an attendant, Under the provisions of the Emergency Travel Plan. if the employee is the first named he can designate his spouse as the person to make the trip. In the event he becomes critically ill and must be evacuated, his wife, relying on the insurance coverage, can accompany him. A similar use can be made of the Emergency Travel Plan if the emergency involves the family members at the post with the employee. By naming these family members and paying the additional premium, the employee can be assured of payment of travel expenses if he wishes to accompany a critically ill family member. b. The premium rates for the emergency travel plan are as follows: Age of Named Person First Named Person Each Additional Person 0 through 49 $32.00 $13.00 50 through 64 $40.00 $21.00 65 through 69 $50.00 $31.00 70 through 75 (renewals only) $65.00 $46.00 c. The "Important Instructions" listed on page 33 of the Association Insurance Programs Booklet must be followed to be assured that the application will be promptly approved. 25X1A2d1 25X1A2e FORM 5-60 53a USE PREVIOUS EDITION.
