Will OMIC cover me for the performance of phakic implants?

Updated 10/2/2019

Yes. Coverage is automatically included within the standard Surgery Class 3 rating classification.

Due to concerns regarding the risk of endophthalmitis or other serious vision-threatening complications associated with intraocular surgery and the difficulties the company would likely experience defending a resulting claim if the procedure were performed in a setting that did not meet existing standards for sterile conditions, OMIC recommends that phakic implant surgery be performed only in a hospital or outpatient surgical center approved for cataract surgery. Full sterile technique should be followed.
