OMS National Insurance Company, RRG (OMSNIC)
OMSNIC has been the leading provider of professional liability insurance to OMSs for over 25 years, and insures more than 80% of eligible oral and maxillofacial surgeons nationwide.
OMSNIC has a proven track record of aggressively defending claims brought against its policyholders. Highly trained Claims specialists and expert defense counsel repeatedly achieve a 94% success rate at trial.
OMSNIC has a number of resources which are available online that residents may find useful.
OMSNICase is a collection of informative, real-life patient case studies submitted by oral and maxillofacial surgery residents, faculty and clinicians. The case studies represent challenging clinical cases, complications and outcomes and can be used to assess and encourage diagnostic and treatment decisions.
The bi-monthly OMS Guardian newsletter contains articles with a risk management focus. With regular features such as a Closed Claim Summary and Staff Corner, the newsletter provides information on risk management, regulatory and legal issues that are of importance to Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
OMSNIC developed the Resident Surgical Log system as a convenient way for residents to record and maintain accurate, real-time records of their surgical experience. It contains pull-down menus for program-specific faculty and treatment facilities, in addition to ICD-9 diagnostic codes, CPT/CDT procedure codes, as well as off-service anesthesia codes. The reports generated from the RSL enable residents to track accreditation requirements, as well as fulfill the requirements for the ABOMS Record of Operative Experience.
OMSNIC offers a 5% premium credit for three consecutive policy periods upon successful completion of our course, ‘RMC 413 - Risk Management for the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon’. OMSNIC is pleased to offer an additional 5% premium credit to residents graduating in 2013 and beyond who have completed our new online ‘Resident Risk Management Series’ now available in the e-Learning Center.
