Do I have to be ABO or AOBOO certified to qualify for OMIC coverage?

Certification status by a recognized Board is one of many factors that OMIC considers as a whole when evaluating current and potential insureds. While OMIC does not require that physicians be Board certified by the ABO or AOBOO at the time of application, an offer of coverage may be made contingent upon the physician obtaining certification within a reasonable time frame.

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.
