Locations Served: All 50 states in the U.S. and Guam, Saipan, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, and the Philippines.
The Client: The Seafarers International Union (SIU) is the largest North American union representing merchant mariners.
The Need: Among the benefits offered to members of SIU is participation in the Seafarers Health and Benefits Plan (SHBP). When SIU was looking at improving its clinic system as part of that plan, the union needed a company with an extensive network of providers and the ability to handle a rapid surge in volume of exam services in an efficient manner. In particular, SIU wanted to expand the clinic network offered to its members in order to better serve them closer to home.
