DOT Physicals / Medical Cards
DOT Physicals & Medical Cards
All DOT drivers are required to have a yearly physical. This is very important and carefully monitored by auditors nationwide. A medical card has to be updated during a physical by a certified physician. Unfortunately, many drivers and employers wait until the last minute and put unhealthy employees on our roads. This is very dangerous as there has been many fatal accidents that are related to the health of the driver. This is a very important part of screening employee drivers before they are allowed to operate a 26,000 pound vehicle on our highways. A driver's health can change over time. Safety managers are given the very important task of maintaining accurate and up to date medical cards or a driver is not allowed to drive at all. There may be other jobs within the company if a driver has to be pulled from the road based on his physical results. Please make sure your drivers are able to pass this important DOT Physical before they drive for your company.
DO NOT cut corners! As it is very important to your company, public safety, and the career of the driver.

National DOT Medical Network
Our vast collection of over 8,000 medical clinics nationwide has evolved over 20 years and is constantly changing with updates. Occupational clinics with great hours of operation such as Monday to Friday, and even Saturday with hours of 8 am to 8 pm are our favorite. Clinic such as Concentra, US Healthworks, Care Now, MedExpress, Chiropractors, and physicians play an important roll in this process every day. As a 20 year Third Party Administrator (TPA), we have found that our relationship with our clinic network for physicals, drug, alcohol, and blood work is the most important relationship in our entire company. These clinics prefer our easy to read instructions, professionalism, and most of all to get paid on time for their services.
DOT Medical Card Accuracy
As mentioned, do not get caught with employees without an updated DOT medical card. The fines can be substancial and there is nothing like a driver being removed from the road and the cost associated with getting the company vehicle. Many of our customers spend lots of man hours trying to do this in house and count on untrained employees to find clinics, call drivers, or schedule tests that never take place. They do not have the knowledge of what needs to be done during the medical exam nor are they set up for payment. Many times they have no idea if the donor came to the clinic at all. Let ESM take away this timely process that can leave your company in jeopardy of fines, or a serious accident from an unqualified driver.
