Risk Management

Unapproved Devices

Ophthalmologists are privy to various treatment alternatives, many of which are tested and employed by their peers around the world long before they are approved for use here in the U.S. Before deciding whether or not to use the newest device available, physicians would be well advised to evaluate the patient safety and professional liability risks.

Six reasons OMIC is the best choice for ophthalmologists in America.

#3. 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 your 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’s base rates have consistently averaged approximately 15% lower than multispecialty carriers in the U.S.
