    Just found out od is making drivers pay if you have a 1 yr card ....... Every other one driver has to pay $74 and still go to company Dr for it.......your thoughts.

    Driver pay's for every other year.So if you pay this year OD will pay next year.You must still go to OD Dr.Just keep a record on when you pay.Thing's got messed up last year so OD payed for them.Alway's been this way.They will only pay for it every 2 year's.

    It's not all about being Healthier.Does help for sure.I personally think we should go once a year.Alot of driver's don't even go to the doctor and this is the only time they go.

    Also just read about people on like 3 months because of BP issues will no longer get that exemption. One year or 2 for everyone from what I understand.

    Next you will pay.They switched system's and was all messed up.So they payed everyone last year.The kicker is what will start soon.Found out today no more paying the Medical Center.Going to have to send OD a money order "only" for $75.00 to pay for it.

    My blood pressure was under control and testing below 140. My big mistake was mentioning that I was taking blood pressure medication. That was a learning experience for me.

    If they are gonna make it this difficult they should just let us go to our own doctor and get it done. Why does it have to be this hard?

    Must be a 3rd party.If you payed your doctor then he or she could write anything.Just saying.Will not work.

    I think I have to disagree with you here Kenneth. I think a 3rd party is much more interested in the $90 then my health. I don't think my doctor would put their license on the line and is much more interested in keeping me healthy then a clinic pushing divers thru the physical line. The more divers, the more money.

    Agree Ump.I think the company looks at it has a conflict of interest.I quess that's the right word's.It's all a money thing anyway.Just like the finger prints.
