Claims related to illness are frequently notified to the Club, with the number of claims reported remaining consistent over the last five policy years and with costs equating to approximately US$ 5.6 million per annum. With this in mind, the Club has developed an Enhanced Pre-Employment Medical Examination (PEME) for crew members.
To maintain the quality and integrity of the EPEME scheme and to ensure consistency, only clinics accredited by the Club should be utilised. Clinics are only approved when they have successfully passed a detailed audit by a trained medical practitioner with experience in EPEMEs. The clinics on the list will be audited annually to ensure standards are maintained.
