A user thread that is ready to be executed for the first time. A continuation contains all the necessary information to execute a future, which is a section of code to be executed in parallel with other threads in the program. A continuation becomes a thread when it first begins execution.
In computing, a continuation is a representation of the execution state of a program (for example, the call stack or values of variables) at a certain point. Many languages have constructs that allow a programmer to save the current execution state into an object, and then restore the state from this object at a later point in time (thereby resuming its execution). This technique has been used in functional programming, imperative programming, and message passing programming.
Inforce coverage whose provisions have been significantly modified without evidence of insurability. These modifications may include internal replacements, policy exchanges, term conversions, re-entries, and contractually permitted increases. Reinsurance on these policies stays with the original reinsurer unless otherwise agreed.
The right to continue health insurance after no longer eligible for coverage under a group plan if meeting certain conditions. Referred to as COBRA continuation for group of 20 or more employees. State continuation plans for smaller groups apply in some states.
Allows eligible person(s) to continue their insurance coverage beyond the coverage termination date for reasons such as loss of eligibility, death of the insured member or when the insured member is no longer insured under the policy. A continuation application typically must be submitted within a specified timeframe.
When a former plan member has lost eligibility because of a qualifying event (as defined by law), coverage identical to that currently being provided to "similarly situated" active employees must be continued without a lapse if requested by the member. To illustrate, a member, who had Plan A previously, would continue to have the benefits of Plan A as a COBRA member. Examples of qualifying events include: termination of the subscribing member's employment, divorce or legal separation from the subscribing member, loss of eligibility of the subscribing member's dependent child, death of the subscribing member.
State or federal (COBRA) option for a member who no longer qualifies as an active employee but can extend his or her insurance coverage for a specific amount of time. The member is responsible for any premium. This generally applies to medical coverage only, but can include dental depending on legislation and group size. Coverage and premium are the same as the group's.
A program whereby employees and their dependents who lose coverage because of termination of employment, death, divorce, or other life events may be able to continue the coverage under the employer's group health plan for themselves and their families for limited periods of time.
A situation where a Member who would otherwise lose health insurance coverage due to termination of employment or loss of eligibility is allowed to continue coverage, under the group's policy, for a limited period of time under specified conditions.
A continuation is an order from a mailer who has tested, or continued on the list within the past 12 months. The mailers usually have found that the list does work for their offer, and is now using it again.
The process whereby a market proceeds in the direction of the current trend after a period of consolidation. A continuation may be distinguished from a reversal. A geometric pattern may indicate either a continuation of a trend or the reversal of the trend.
the Institutional Review Board (IRB) must review and approve all human subjects research protocols at intervals appropriate to the degree of risk but not less than once per year. There is no grace period beyond one year from the last IRB approval date. In order to avoid lapses in approval of a research and the possible suspension of subject enrollment, a continuation request should be submitted at least six weeks before the protocol's expiration date. Annual IRB review is required until the study is completed (see Completion of Study).
Applicable mainly in the U.S., continuations are second or subsequent applications that are filed while the original parent application is pending. Continuations must claim the same invention as the original application to gain the benefit of the parent filing date.
Refers to a process whereby a cancelled AFDC case continues to receive child support enforcement services from the Title IV-D agency. Services continue to be provided until the client requests discontinuance (in writing), contact can no longer be made with the client or there is a failure to comply with program requirements.
