    NPME pays for the physical.
    But it must be done by their doctor.
    I've been told that you cannot have it done by any but there's because under the new DOT self certification or whatever it's called....the physical goes in the computer for your CDL and the signing doctor must now be a doctor which is somehow registered with your company ....meaning all the appointments I made in May to go to another employer must be redone by NPME'S physical expiration date.
    Company doctors have a right(actually any doctor does) to make you go back and detest at your specialist or the specialist may require detests...stress tests...echocardiograms....whatever. the specialist is my cost....cost doesn't bug me as much as setting and making appointments...which could be 3.

    * retest not detest

    NPME does not pay for your time to get the physical. It pays the bill if you go to their doctor, which from my understanding, you must go to their doctor now.

    Unless they changed the rules New Penn always paid for the physical and you did it on the clock if you were in the city.. Road guys generally went when they finished their trip for the night..

    Maybe different rules for different terminals or supplements. We're in the Central PA.
