Certified CDL Medical Exam

Resolution of conflicts of medical evaluation

Safety Department,
 (Q) Is it real smart to have your company doctor to do a CDL Medical Exam or should you set up a panel of certify CDL doctors and establish a national doctor list?
CDL Medical exam must be a non-bias exam in which the doctor musts follow the medical guidelines  that the FMCSA put forward.
(A)  Let me answer this question for you. The trend in the transportation industry is to establish medical panels of certify DOT doctors in each state, in which the driver pays for his own medical CDL medical exam (company may repay the driver for CDL medical exam). It appears that when the company doctor does the CDL Medical exam that this could be a conflict of interests of the medical evaluation. That is if you only send all your drivers to one medical group. If the Driver disagree with the results on his/her CDL Medical Exam.The driver can requests’ a conflict of medical evaluation.
To resolve this problem have the driver go to a DOT certify doctor that they pick from your panel lists of doctors.
Trucker Exam Inc. wants to be on your panel.
