Will OMIC reimburse me for lost wages as a result of court appearances?

Yes. If, at OMIC’s request, you attend a court proceeding, trial, mediation, or arbitration involving a covered claim, OMIC will reimburse you for your loss of earnings upon your request. This supplementary payment is subject to a maximum of $500 per day of attendance (i.e., attendance of more than three hours) and $250 per half-day (i.e., three hours or fewer). Attendance at your own deposition or the deposition of others is not a court proceeding and does not qualify for these supplementary payments.

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.
