Does my LASIK coverage include coverage for Presbyopic Multifocal LASIK (PML)?

Presbyopic Multifocal LASIK (also referred to as PML or PresbyLASIK) is a laser vision correction procedure that treats presbyopia by creating different power zones on the cornea. Because PML is still in the investigational stages in the US, OMIC recommends that physicians wait until PML obtains FDA approval before performing the procedure unless they are participating in clinical trials under an American IRB-approved protocol. As a reminder, clinical research or trials that are not conducted under and in accordance with an American IRB-approved protocol are specifically excluded under the policy.

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.
