Risk Management



Difficult Physician-Patient Relationships

Course Description

Eye surgeons are confronted with a wide variety of patient behaviors which can cause stress and miscommunication. These behaviors can also lead to allegations of professional liability against a physician. This course addresses factors that contribute to dissatisfied and non-compliant patient behavior and identifies resources that can be used to minimize these risks.

Six reasons OMIC is the best choice for ophthalmologists in America.

#3. Best at defending claims.

An ophthalmologist pays nearly half a million dollars in premiums over the course of a career. Premium paid is directly related to your carrier’s claims experience. OMIC has a higher win rate taking tough cases to trial, full consent to settle (no hammer) clause, and access to the best experts. OMIC pays 25% less per claim than other carriers. As a result, OMIC’s base rates have consistently averaged approximately 15% lower than multispecialty carriers in the U.S.
