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.

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

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 $90 Million to our members through dividends.
