We are financially secure with a healthy surplus to prepare us for the future and have a stellar reputation among our colleagues in the medical professional liability community. As I start my term it is my vision that along with the incredible ophthalmologists on our board and committees and the superior OMIC staff, that we continue to build our outstanding partnership with the AAO while adapting to the ever-changing clinical, business and medical-legal climate in ophthalmology.

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.
