Policyholder Services

I have been asked to perform cataract surgery on a dog. Would my OMIC policy respond in the event of a claim?

Your OMIC policy is intended to cover professional services rendered to human patients only. Services rendered to animals falls outside the scope of licensure as a medical doctor (MD) or doctor of osteopathy (DO). To be legally authorized to render medical services to animals, one must be licensed as a veterinarian and should obtain professional liability coverage specifically designed for veterinary services.

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. Don’t underestimate this benefit; it can add up to tens of thousands of dollars over the course of your career. OMIC has one of the most generous dividend programs for ophthalmologists and has returned more than $20 Million to our members through dividends.
