Medix is an Allied Member of the Iowa Motor Trucking Association and we support their efforts on behalf of Iowa’s and America’s trucking industry.
All Medix providers are DOT Certified Medical Examiners.
Medix works with Iowa’s trucking companies to ensure safety by performing DOT examinations as determined by federal and state regulations and employer-defined protocols.
Medix providers recognize that in some instances, the DOT examination is the driver’s primary point of contact with a healthcare provider. Our providers use this opportunity to provide preventive medicine information to drivers in addition to the certifying examination, a “value added” service to the drivers and their employers to help them manage their overall health.
This is a functional exam to make sure the driver can do their job with a focus on prevention.
Ensuring that drivers are medically safe is an important Medix focus. FMCSA statistics suggest that a significant percentage of America’s commercial drivers have medical issues that may impact safety.
