Locum Tenens Application

A locum tenens is an ophthalmologist hired on a temporary basis to furnish direct patient treatment on behalf of, and only in the absence of, the Insured ophthalmologist. If the physician will provide services on a long-term basis (i.e., longer than 90 days) or will work concurrently with the employing ophthalmologist, please complete a Group Physician application instead.

Due to state patient compensation/excess liability fund prohibitions on the sharing of liability limits, locum tenens coverage is not available in Kansas, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, or Wisconsin.

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.
