OMIC maintains educational alliances with most ophthalmic societies in the United States. We share patient safety and risk management resources and also support local lobbying and tort reform efforts. Policyholders who are members of societies with an OMIC partnership earn a 10% risk management discount when they complete an approved OMIC risk management event. Visit the page for your society below for more information on which events qualify for the discount.
The American Academy of Ophthalmology is our sponsoring organization. Policyholders must be an active member of the Academy in order to maintain coverage through OMIC. The Academy, the American Academy of Ophthalmic Executives, and OMIC collaborate on educational initiatives periodically and share resources to improve patient safety and prevent litigation against ophthalmologists.
