Future Care


Future Care is a global medical management and cost containment service provider exclusively serving the maritime industry. Future Care provides global telemedical services to the Captain and crew while onboard ship at sea and shoreside medical management through to repatriation and follow-up treatment until return to work. The company’s medical audit team specializes in preventing medically unneccesary treatment costs.

Through its joint venture with International SOS Future Care leads with an in-house capacity of 5,200 medical professionals and 65 clinics, plus preferential provider contracts and independent network access across the globe.

Future Care was founded in 1996 by President & CEO Christina DeSimone, who brought her unique brand of personalized medical case management for land-based employees directly to ship owners and their crews. Future Care has grown rapidly since then, filling a need in the maritime community for expert management of seafarers' medical treatment and related services world-wide. Future Care's unique Caring for the Crew® program for shipowners brings expert continuity of care for the seafarer from the time of need onboard ship through to shoreside treatment and ultimate recovery and return to work.
