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

#1. Consistent return of premium.

Publicly-traded insurance companies exist to make profits for shareholders while physician-owned carriers often return profits to their policyholders.

OMIC has one of the most generous dividend programs for ophthalmologists and has returned more than $20 Million to our members through dividends.
