Diabetes Rule

The FMCSA has announced a new process for the evaluation of drivers with ITDM  (insulin-treated diabetes mellitus) with an implementation date of November 19, 2018. Previously, the FMCSA required drivers with ITDM to obtain an exemption from the FMCSA. The new regulations allow Medical Examiners to certify drivers with ITDM who have stable regimens and properly controlled ITDM using a process detailed by the FMCSA.

The new process for the evaluation of drivers with ITDM includes evaluation by the driver’s Treating Clinician (TC), the medical provider responsible for managing the driver’s diabetes including the prescription. The TC completes the ITDM Assessment Form, MCSA-5870.  After receipt of the form, the ME will examine the driver and determine whether the driver meets FMCSA qualification standards.
