I understand OMIC covers low vision screening under its “No Surgery” classification, but what about treatment of low vision with VRT™

Treatment of low vision through Vision Restoration Therapy™ (VRT™) or similar FDA-approved or otherwise accepted non-invasive treatments would qualify for coverage under OMIC’s “No Surgery” and higher coverage classifications. Because VRT™ is somewhat controversial and has reported success rates as low as 60 to 65%, managing patient expectations and providing thorough informed consent is critical. OMIC insureds interested in offering VRT™ to their patients can contact our Risk Management Department for confidential advice and assistance.
