(1) permanently disabled in the line of duty and not as the result of his own misconduct, as the result of an accident, injury, or disease arising out of or in the course of his employment; and
(2) whose employment is terminated as a result of the disability, is eligible for the state health and dental insurance plans and state-paid premiums effective on the date his employment is terminated on account of the disability. This participation and state-paid premiums continue while the disability continues."
