What is Travel Assistance?

Travel Assistance is available when you travel more than 100 miles from home or internationally for up to 180 days for business or pleasure. This program is designed to help you respond to medical care situations and other emergencies you and your family 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.

Simply print and carry the Travel Assistance card on the back of this brochure which provides more detailed information. Active employees and retirees enrolled in a PEBP-sponsored medical plan are eligible for this benefit.

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