OMIC named Outstanding Captive of the Year for 2020

OMIC has been chosen Outstanding Captive of the Year for 2020 by the Captive Insurance Companies Association (CICA). A “captive insurer” is generally defined as an insurance company that is wholly owned and controlled by its insureds; its primary purpose is to insure the risks of its owners, and its insureds benefit from the captive insurer’s underwriting profits.

To date, OMIC has returned more than $90 million in policyholder dividends and helped stabilize the market for ophthalmology professional liability insurance.

This prestigious award was created to recognize companies that are creative and successful in the way they manage net results, provide exceptional service to its owners, prevail over difficult times or situations, and gain acceptance, recognition, and a positive reputation among agencies, regulators, and colleagues in its industry. CICA also noted the tremendous impact OMIC has had on risk management and patient safety around the world.

Tim Padovese, OMIC President and CEO

To be recognized in such a way among the 3,200 captives operating in the U.S. is truly an honor for our board, employees, and members.

Tim Padovese, president and CEO of Ophthalmic Mutual Insurance Company (OMIC), notes that his company has avoided trying to become “all things to all people,” instead remaining “laser focused” on covering the professional liability of ophthalmologists and their practices.

That focus has allowed OMIC to deliver to its members a combination of expertise and excellent customer service that, among other things, has produced a 97 percent customer retention rate—and the Captive Insurance Companies Association (CICA) 2020 Outstanding Captive Award.

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

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 a 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 has consistently maintained lower base rates than multispecialty carriers in the U.S.
