What training is necessary for coverage of LASIK?

Physicians must be appropriately trained in LASIK as well as be certified on the laser that they will use. Many laser manufacturers offer a single, “combined certification” course that certifies physicians on both the laser and on the microkeratome. To confirm whether the course(s) you have or plan to attend is a combined certification course, please contact the laser manufacturer. If the course provides only LASIK certification, a separate laser certification (PRK) course is required.

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.
