What is Travel Assistance?

Travel Assistance is available when you travel more than 100 miles from home or internationally for up to 180 days. Dependents traveling on business for their employers are not eligible to access these services during those trips. This program is designed to help active employees, retirees, and employee’s dependents enrolled in a PEBP sponsored medical plan respond to medical care situations and other emergencies you may experience while traveling. The program also offers aid before and during your trip, including:

  • Passport, visa, weather and current exchange information, health hazards advice and inoculation requirements,
  • Emergency ticket, credit card and passport replacement, funds transfer and missing baggage
  • 24/7 365 phone access to registered nurses for health and medication information, symptom decision support, and help understanding treatment options
  • Emergency evacuation to the nearest adequate medical facility and medically necessary repatriation to your home, and a host of other services shown in the Travel Assistance brochure.

Get the most out of Travel Assistance with the Assist America Mobile App. This brochure and program description provides more detailed information.

Note » Travel Assistance is available to active employees and retirees enrolled in a PEBP-sponsored medical plan. Reinstated retirees are not eligible for this benefit.
