Should I have my patients sign an arbitration agreement?

OMIC neither encourages nor discourages physicians from entering into arbitration agreements with their patients, and OMIC does not have any policy provisions, endorsements, or underwriting guidelines that support or prohibit such agreements. Because laws and regulations governing arbitration and alternative dispute resolution (ADR) vary from state to state, we recommend that you consult with your private counsel to determine the benefits and disadvantages before entering into such arrangements.
