What is prior acts coverage?

Prior acts coverage, also referred to as “nose” coverage, is an extension of coverage in which your new carrier agrees to insure you for new, unreported claims arising from services you rendered while you were insured with your previous claims made carrier. By purchasing prior acts coverage from your new carrier (OMIC), you eliminate the need to purchase an extended reporting period endorsement from your previous carrier. Because all requests for prior acts coverage are subject to underwriting review, you should never decline your option to purchase “tail” coverage from your previous carrier until you have received confirmation that your request for prior acts coverage from your new carrier has been approved.

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

Best at defending claims.

An ophthalmologist pays nearly half a million dollars in premiums over the course of a career. Premium paid is directly related to a carrier’s claims experience. OMIC has a higher win rate taking tough cases to trial, full consent to settle (no hammer) clause, and access to the best experts. OMIC pays 25% less per claim than other carriers. As a result, OMIC has consistently maintained lower base rates than multispecialty carriers in the U.S.
