As a nationwide professional liability carrier, OMSNIC has developed partnerships with independent agents across the country. 

 

These agents can provide oral and maxillofacial surgeons OMSGuard™, the best service possible for professional liability needs, and also save time and money by offering experienced advice on all aspects of insurance for OMSs, not just on OMSNIC coverage.

NEW FROM THE OMS GUARDIAN

DEFENSE OF OMS CLAIMS - IT'S COMPLICATED AND EXPERIENCE COUNTS!
James Q. Swift, DDS - Chair of the OMSNIC Board

 

OMSNIC is committed to defending OMS and has been steadfast in this effort for 29 years, the entirety of its existence. No other insurance company comes even remotely close to OMSNIC’s experience defending the specialty. Since its inception, OMSNIC has managed close to 15,000 OMS claims, including lawsuits, requests for compensation, medical and dental board investigations, assistance with depositions, and other legal demands or matters. We have taken more OMS claims to trial than any other insurance company and secured a favorable outcome 94% of the time. Bottom line, no company has OMSNIC’s experience or record of success in managing OMS claims and defending the specialty.

 

Defending allegations of malpractice, made against you or a colleague, is a significant and time consuming endeavor. Oral and maxillofacial surgery claims are more complex than dental malpractice claims and claims made against other dental specialists. Similar to the value of experience in performing surgical techniques for the best outcomes, an experienced and specialized claims management process is critical for a successful resolution.

 

OMSNIC’s claims management process is built around a team approach, where the team’s vast years of experience defending only oral and maxillofacial claims makes all the difference. Recently, I recalled my experience and association with OMSNIC. During my continuous and ongoing 25 year tenure on the OMSNIC Claims Committee, I have personally reviewed, in depth, approximately 2,700 OMS claims. Many of our Claims Committee members have similar tenures, a true distinction of OMSNIC, and one which no other insurance company can match.
