The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) passed a bill which Congress approved that mandates all drivers be tested for variety of medical aliments, this also includes respiratory dysfunction, and one of the ailments being sleep apnea.
With this new regulation all individuals who want to receive or maintain a commercial drivers license (CDL) will have to go through and visit with a Certified Medical Examiner (CME), but one that has been certified by the Department of Transportation.
The strongest argument for employers to utilize Sleep Master Solutions screening, testing and treatment programs is ours is the most complete, “driver centric” and not a sales based, program. Sleep Master Solutions inoculates the employer from legal liability with its “chain of custody” program testing.
Once the CME determines a patient may have sleep apnea, the CME then sends the referral to Sleep Master Solutions and then Sleep Master Solutions assumes all responsibility for the individual ensuring the individual can maintain his CDL and medical card.
