MTAC has received the new Certified Medical Examination forms, and they are available for sale. As part of the 2015 Medical Examiner’s Certification Integration Final Rule, medical examiners will soon be required to use the revised Medical Long Form (MCSA-5875) and Medical Examination Certification (med card) (MCSA-5876). If you have “old” forms, they will be valid only until April 20, 2016.
The new forms were originally going to be required beginning at the end of 2015, but that deadline was delayed by FMCSA. According to FMCSA, that action was taken to ensure that Medical Examiners had sufficient time to become familiar with the new forms and to program electronic medical records systems.
Now that MTAC has the new forms in stock which are valid for use at this time, they are the only forms that will be sold from now on. If you need to order the new forms, visit the MTAC office, or call the office at (860) 520-4455.
