Is my optometrist covered for prescribing Latisse?

OMIC’s policy extends coverage to any optometrist named in the declarations who is acting within the scope of his or her training, licensure, and employment by the insured ophthalmologist or professional entity at the time of the professional services incident. Provided that the prescription of Latisse falls within the optometrist’s legal scope of practice and training, coverage would apply. Please contact your state optometric board to confirm this is a permissible activity; special certification (such as TPA certification) may be required.
