ASSOCIUM Benefits - Travel Insurance Coverage
Do you know what your emergency out of country coverage (OCC) is?
A standard benefit in the healthcare portion of most group benefits plans is the emergency out of country coverage (OCC). The point of OCC is to cover the cost of emergency medical treatment incurred while an employee or their dependants are outside the country.

Setting Objectives
Three types of standards are employed together
Every organization, regardless of size, reach or sector should have a normalized process for planning and goal setting. This would be an integral first step in successfully achieving outcomes. It is imperative that the planning and goal setting process be developed on a solid foundation of achievable objectives that provide the organization and its people with a clear view of where they are headed. It also allows for an iterative visioning of the organization’s future that sustains direction and growth.
