Approved For Release 20SM,g7 : CIA-RDP82-00357R000600020001-ZT 22SEP 1960 a/1 MEMORANDUM FOR.,, Special Support Assistant to the DD/S Assistant to the DD/I (Administration) Executive Assistant to the DD/S SUBJECT: Health Insurance for Certain Contract Employees 1 4 ti 1. The Deputy Directors (Plans) and (Support) have recently approved the adoption of it health insurance program for certain contract employees which is generally comparable to that author- ized for appointed employees under the Federal Employees' Health Benefits Act of 1959. Contract employees are specifically ex- cluded from the provisions of that Act; however, the Agency is administratively extending to them a comparable benefit to be pro- vided under a special contract 2. Eligibility under this program is limited to those full-time contract employees who are U. S. citizens or resident aliens, whose employment relationship to the Agency is comparable to that of appointed employees, and whose services have been approximately equated to the General Schedule salary levels of appointed employees for compensation purposes. The employing unit is considered to be in the best position to identify contract employees who thus qualify for this benefit and we must rely on them to ensure that eligible personnel are informed of this program and that only eligible per- sonnel apply. We are therefore suggesting that the additional copies of this memorandum and the descriptive material which are attached be distributed to appropriate operating levels in your respective areas. The descriptive material has been prepared so that it may be given to eligible contract employees along with application forms. 3. The initial enrollment period extends through 1 December 1960. After this period, only new employees or those being converted to contract status may apply and they must do so within 60 days of employment in contract status. Later "open periods" for individuals who do not apply within the prescribed period will be scheduled from time to time. The Teri-up hospital. plan now available to contract em- ployees will be cancelled as of 1 December 1960, the closing date for enrollment in the new plan. Individuals who do not join the new plan will not be insured after 1 December 1960. Unearned premiums will be returned to the individual as soon as possible.
