    My DoT card expires in the near future and every place I call wants like $100 for a physical and doesn't accept insurance. I'm positive I paid little or nothing out of pocket when I originally got my card. Does UPS pay for this if I go to certain doctors or something?

    I'll talk to one of my on-road supervisors next time I see them but I have today off and was hoping to get it done.

    Company pays.
    Pull the forms for MD to complete from UPSers.com.

    Ah so I can bring the forms to any Doctor and UPS will just reimburse them?

    ​Thanks!

    No.
    Go to UPSERS.
    When you pull the paperwork from UPSERS - it will give you a list of MDs.
    Follow directions and make your appointment.

    I always had UPS call and schedule appt for physical. UPS had an arrangement with Urgent Care to do them. I would just need to pick up the paperwork from clerk at UPS and take with me. Urgent Care would mail them back to UPS afterwards. I never saw any bills about it.

    Well I went to UPSers.com and it says paperwork has to be printed out at a UPS facility now, lame. Thanks for the help.

    Just went through this * You can complete everything on your home computer and save it but can't print the forms like in the past * Got to go to the center to do that; one more way of screwing with us

    Your kidding?
    Geez.
    Why then do they make such a fuss about going to the HR services on UPSers?
    Stupid if you ask me.

    (someone, ask me, plz)

    I go to my personal doctor for my yearly physical and he does my DOT then. Doesn't cost anything extra and I get blood work done. Two birds with one stone.

    At express we are paid on the clock to get our card, I would assume it's the same at ups. No reason to do it on your own time when you get paid.

    I just laught at the hearing test. What? Sitting in that tiny little booth. It's like the Gemini space capsule. I just push the button every few seconds. Works every time. I can't read the bottom line anymore on the eye chart. I'm going blind.

    Lol, me too. So I read the 3rd line above that and she says "Don't worry, you still see better than most".
    ​Great, most drivers are blind....

    my hearing test would just be a nurse (or more likely an aide) standing behind me whispering "can you hear me now?"

    Got mine the other day, what a freaking joke. Turn my head, and cover my ear, she says a number...................duh.
    Good thing I know I am in good health..............I was worried about my bp being up, but according to them it was 130/80.
    Then they said I needed to see my family physician about x,y,z. Oh you dont have one? Well we just happen to have a whole slew of them. Everything is a racket anymore.......

    Is it normal for this procedure to be video taped?
    Last one I had, the dr wanted to know if i was ok with that.
