April Bulletin: COVID-19 Consent Form

OMIC continues to monitor the fast changing environment with regard to the COVID-19 outbreak and resulting governmental actions that are affecting ophthalmologists and their patients. On April 19, CMS issued recommendations to reopen healthcare systems for elective procedures. Many states have announced plans to reopen businesses and allow elective and non-emergent medical and surgical procedures.

We now have a COVID-19 consent form for those insureds who practice in states requiring consent. Please consult your state health department, local medical society, or governor’s office to find out whether this is recommended protocol in your state.

Contact OMIC’s Risk Management department if you have questions by calling 1-800-562-6642 and enter “4” for Risk Management, or email us at riskmanagement@omic.com

We are committed to supporting you, our insureds, through this challenging time. Please remain safe.
