Will OMIC insure a doctor for emergency room coverage?

OMIC automatically extends coverage to insureds who rotate through the emergency room and provide emergency ophthalmic care within the scope of their coverage classification. Since “Emergency Medicine” is a significantly higher risk classification than ophthalmology and OMIC does not have expertise in non-ophthalmic cases, OMIC generally does not extend coverage to physicians who practice Emergency Medicine.
