Is coverage available to me before I complete my residency?

If your residency program is insured through OMIC, you may be covered for your residency activities by OMIC through a “slot” position under the residency program’s insurance policy.

If you are applying for coverage unrelated to your residency, you may submit your application at any time. However, your coverage will not become effective until you have completed your residency.  Because most residency programs prohibit moonlighting, coverage is generally not available for moonlighting activities but may be provided if you have received written approval from your residency program.

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

#4. Largest insurer in the U.S.

OMIC is the largest insurer of ophthalmologists in the United States and we've been the only physician-owned carrier to continuously offer coverage in all states since 1987 (pending in WI). Our fully portable policy can be taken with you wherever you practice. Should you move to a new state or territory, you're covered without the cost or headache of applying for new coverage.
