What is a retroactive date?

The retroactive date is the date on or after which incidents must first occur to be covered by the policy (subject to the terms and conditions of your policy).

Is the retroactive date the date I join OMIC?

Not always. If your policy includes prior acts coverage, the retroactive date will be the date you joined your prior carrier (or the date of your prior acts coverage with that carrier). If you were previously insured under an occurrence policy, purchased “tail” coverage from your previous carrier, or are new to practice, you  may not need prior acts coverage. In that case, your retroactive date will be the date you join OMIC.

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

#1. 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 $20 Million to our members through dividends.
