Medical Review Officer (MRO) Services
Medical Review Officer (MRO) services are provided by National Drug Screening (NDS) for employers and for third party administrators (TPA) serving employers. MRO services are provided by National Drug Screening with a robust technology platform. This technology platform is state of the art drug testing software.
The use of the MRO is required in a DOT drug and alcohol testing program and in many states per state laws on drug testing or specific state drug free workplace programs. Federal drug free workplace programs also require the use of an MRO for processing drug testing results once they have had a confirmation test at the laboratory.
The final review of results is an essential component of any drug testing program. A positive laboratory test result does not automatically identify an employee or job applicant as an illegal drug user, nor does a laboratory result of invalid, substituted, or adulterated automatically identify specimen tampering.
The Medical Review Officer or MRO is required to be a licensed physician responsible for receiving laboratory results generated by a drug testing program, who has knowledge of substance abuse disorders and has appropriate medical training to interpret and evaluate an individual's positive test result with his or her medical history and any other relevant biomedical information. The MRO has to receive specific training and certification to perform MRO services in the drug testing and drug screening process.

Joe Reilly, President of National Drug Screening is a national expert on setting up employer drug free workplace programs.

As Joe Reilly has presented on for many years, a drug free workplace program consists of five components:

- When will your policy apply?
- What behavior will be prohibited?
- Will employees be required to notify you of drug-related convictions?
- Will your policy include searches?
- Will your program include drug testing?
- What will the consequences be if your policy is violated?
- Will there be Return-to-Work Agreements?
- What type of assistance will be available?

In each of the DOT regulated agencies or modes of transportation there must be a Designated Employer Representative or DER. The regulated modes listed below all require DOT drug and alcohol drug and alcohol testing programs.
- Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) – 49 CFR Part 382

Consortium/Third Party Administrator (C/TPA)
The TPA or Third-Party Administrator provides a vital service to employers in the drug testing process coordinating aspects of specimen collection, laboratory analysis, medical review officer (MRO) reporting of drug test results, customer service and combined billing. Random testing programs and consortium services are also provided by a C/TPA. A great service available from National Drug Screening as a Third-Party Administrator is to provide to employers a vast network of over 10,000 collection sites all across the United States. With a C/TPA an employer has one point of contact for specimen collection, laboratory testing, MRO review of results, random testing and all other questions related to drug testing and drug free workplace programs.
Drug testing businesses known as a TPA’s have evolved because the laboratories do not provide all the services that employers need for an effective drug testing program. The United States Department of Transportation (DOT) states that - “Consortium/Third-Party Administrators (C/TPAs) manage all, or part, of an employer's DOT drug and alcohol testing program, sometimes including maintaining required testing records. They perform tasks as agreed to by the employer to assist in implementing the drug and alcohol testing program and to help keep the employer compliant with the DOT/FMCSA Drug and Alcohol Testing rules and regulations.”
National Drug Screening (NDS) provides C/TPA services direct to employers. Thousands of employers utilize NDS as their Consortium/Third-Party Administrator for their drug testing and drug free workplace programs. Often the C/TPA is called upon to assist employer with a drug free workplace policy. Joe Reilly, President of National Drug Screening is actively involved in developing drug free workplace policies for small, medium and large employers.
NDS also serves hundreds of C/TPA’s and background check companies providing back office services for complete drug testing management. This offering known as our Reseller Program provides software, laboratory services, MRO services along with consultation and training. The Reseller Program is kind of like a white label for selling drug testing; branding is provided on reports going out to employers. Our resellers enjoy a turnkey business operation without having to invest in technology and infrastructure. The biggest advantage to our Reseller Program is the knowledge and professional team at National Drug Screening providing great personalized customer service.
What Do Employers Need To Know?
At a basic level you will need to know the difference between DOT and Non-DOT drug testing programs; often called regulated or non-regulated testing. Workers that fall under U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations must be given a specific type of drug test required for employment drug screening. It is a five-panel test often referred to simply as a "DOT drug screen," and the custody and control form (CCF) used must be a federal form. There are a variety of other rules that apply to the DOT drug & alcohol testing programs required of the employers that are subject to these DOT regulations, you must read 49 CFR Part 40 to learn these.
Workers employed in positions that do not require drug screening under DOT regulations are given non-DOT tests if their companies have drug-testing policies in place. Companies have flexibility in establishing non-DOT policies and procedures for drug testing, including what substances to check for and how often drug tests are required. It is important for these non-DOT employers to work within the guidelines of the State laws that might apply to them.
Many TPA’s provide at a minimum the following:
- Review or Initial Set Up of the Drug Free Workplace Policy
- Supervisor Training and Employee Education Programs
- Coordination of all drug testing and review/reporting of results by a Medical Review Officer
- Management of the Random Drug Testing Program
- Maintenance of Program Records
Employers need Lab and MRO accounts, custody and control forms, and a method for receiving drug test results along. Clearly there is a need for a third party administrator (TPA) for an employer drug testing program.
National Drug Screening offers Medical Review Officer services and drug testing management software. Medical Review Officer or MRO services are available to TPA’s who also need a comprehensive software program that can manage their entire drug testing program.
