AMC uses Medical Review Officers that are experienced in the field of substance abuse recognition and rehabilitation, and are knowledgeable of drug testing requirements mandated by federal regulations. The Medical Review Officer will report all drug test results to the DER through AMC’s test result reporting system. Test results will be reported in a confidential manner. Test results will be reported to the DER on the same day the MRO verifies the result or the next business day all verified positive test results, results requiring an immediate collection under direct observation, adulterated or substituted specimen results, and other refusals to test. The employer must ensure the security of the test result transmission and limit access to any transmission, storage, or retrieval systems.
