OMS National Insurance Company

OMS National Insurance Company, Risk Retention Group, rated A (Excellent) by A.M. Best Company, was formed in 1987 by Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons to provide insurance, risk management, and profit sharing. OMSNIC is endorsed by AAOMS, insuring over 80% of eligible OMS nationwide.

OMSGuard™

OMSGuard™ is OMSNIC’s proprietary name for the comprehensive claims protection, strong defense, and superior risk management that we design exclusively for oral and maxillofacial surgeons. It is the standard of excellence in nationwide OMS professional liability insurance and the only insurance program for OMS endorsed by AAOMS.

Service and Value

We only insure oral and maxillofacial surgeons, and your needs are our priority. Our responsive, experienced staff provides knowledgeable recommendations and advice. Each OMSGuard™ policy also includes additional insurance protection at no added cost, like cyber liability, personal umbrella and other defense coverages.

Peer Claims Review

OMSGuard™ is the only claims defense managed by OMS for OMS. You can be assured that your claim will be reviewed by practicing oral and maxillofacial surgeons. The OMSNIC Claims Committee is comprised entirely of OMS who understand complex treatment decisions, in contrast to other insurance companies where business people make claims decisions.

OMSGuard™ provides three components for unmatched OMS practice protection:

Powerful and specialized, with OMS oversight.

Strong, Specialized Claims Defense. Statistics indicate that nearly one in ten oral and maxillofacial surgeons is sued each year. That means it is highly likely you will have to defend a lawsuit at least once over the course of your career. OMSGuard Claims Defense provides the strongest possible defense throughout the claim resolution process. We have a record of excellence successfully defending OMS for over 25 years. OMSGuard defense attorneys receive specialized clinical training in OMS claims that makes them uniquely effective as powerful advocates. They know the specialty and speak your language.

For Claims-made policies, an Extended Reporting Endorsement, commonly called “Tail Coverage”, may be required to provide protection for claims that are reported after the policy’s termination date. In the event of cancellation or non-renewal, you will need to make sure you purchase a “Tail Policy” or have your new carrier pick up your Prior Acts.

Tail coverage costs additional premium beyond your Claims-made policy, typically double the cost of Claims-made policies. It is a one-time payment and is only available for purchase for a certain period of time following your policy cancellation. The deadline for purchase can vary by the carrier--be sure to understand these time periods prior to cancellation.
