The Department of Commerce and a labor organization requested a decision on whether Commerce should reimburse an employee at a remote duty station for travel expenses he incurred when obtaining emergency medical care. GAO held that the employee's physician: (1) determined that the employee needed immediate medical attention; and (2) could not have foreseen or anticipated the employee's condition. Accordingly, Commerce should reimburse the employee.
