I agree with the hairy chest they tried thousands of times trying to place the ekg things on my chest until they had to shave me having me looking like a man o lantern. Hairy chest gang :( damn genetics 

And dont put lotion or deodorant all over you like yours truly or youll incur the wrath of said nurse as she scrubs you down with alcohol pads, and applies several layers of scotch tape to each sensor, trying to get them to stay put

Hey all, just found this forum while looking into info on the medical assessment, so this is my first post.

Does anyone know if they are able to look up medical records based on signing the affirmation? I saw discussion of this in the last T/O exam topic from 11 years ago. It seems like they would need a HIPAA specific waiver for medical records and that is why they do their own assessment.

Let's say someone was recently diagnosed with a mild condition they're worried would put them on medical hold. They're in the process of getting the condition treated and it does not affect them at work. Additionally, treatment should be complete within a couple months. Is it worth disclosing this, being put on the medical hold, and having to be retested for the absence of the condition every 6 months, or not?

Thanks from a newbie

First of all, welcome.  Second of all, FULL disclosure with MTA .  They will find out absolutely everything and anything from what I’m told.  
 

also, can you please provide your list number in the format : 18xx and state if you’re high or low in that range of numbers please.  Don’t disclose your whole number

List no. 18XX and I got the email and phone call to attend drug testing for August 4th less than five minutes ago. Super stoked, but kind of freaking out still since I'm still waiting on my new ID to come in the mail. All I have right now is a piece of paper as an interim license. It's been a full week since going in for it and I still have three mailing days to get it before my appointment, which I'm assuming I can bring in the updated paperwork with it when I go in that day, but if it doesn't come I'm not sure what they'll do. 

 

It also says in the email "if applicable bring CDL License Class B with passenger endorsement" which I'm assuming is meant for Bus Operators and not train ops since that was never stated before but it threw me off at first.

Depends on what it is, but generally if your doctor doesn't stupidly send it to Transit, you're fine. Generally, it's sleep apnea, high blood pressure, and diabetes are the top three they look out for.

Going in for my second drug test..last one expired..anyone brought in a copy of their diploma? Just got the email to go in Tuesday and can’t find mine.

Probably stupid question: Do we have to respond to the email to let them know we're planning on coming in for our appointment, or do we respond only if we needed to decline it?
