  (1)  The surviving spouse, if any, at the death of the employee or member, with respect to the spouse and such children whose coverage under the group policy terminates by reason of such death, or if the group policy provides for continuation of dependents coverage following the employee's or member's death, at the end of such continuation;

  (2)  The spouse of the employee or member upon termination of coverage of the spouse, while the employee or member remains insured under the group policy, with respect to the spouse and such children whose coverage under the group policy terminates at the same time; or

  (3)  A child, solely with respect to himself, upon termination of his coverage by reason of ceasing to be a qualified family member under the group policy, if a conversion privilege is not otherwise provided in sections 376.395 to 376.404 with respect to such termination.
