The fourth quarter is here, which means it is DOT consortium renewal time in addition to open enrollment period for healthcare plans. Wisconsin Drug Testing Consortium (WDTC) provides national collection capabilities and competitive pricing that make DOT drug and alcohol compliance testing efficient and cost-effective for owner-operators and larger companies alike.
One of the most common questions we get concerns our ability to facilitate testing outside of our home Wisconsin and Upper Peninsula region. WDTC has affiliations with more than 17,000 collection sites across the USA. This gives your drivers convenient access to any level of DOT drug compliance testing and a practical decision point for your DOT consortium renewal.
We can schedule you or your driver for pre-employment, random and post-accident testing coast to coast in the United States with one simple, 10-minute phone call. Our completely electronic process creates a collection event from the road without the need for paperwork. All the information (5-Ws) goes right to your phone.
Questions to ask regarding DOT consortium renewal
Testing site availability is one of several key differentiators you should review when you make your DOT consortium renewal decision. Here are some questions you should ask your consortium:
What is your accreditation?
WDTC is an accredited, Certified Third Party Administrator (C-TPA), with training completed through the Drug and Alcohol Testing Institute. We focus on staying up to date with DOT drug compliance testing protocols so our clients can be confident they are meeting all DOT compliance regulations.
What is included with your DOT consortium fees?
This is a tricky one, because some consortiums and major medical facilities have hidden fees that don’t appear until you get your bill. You may also receive separate bills for specific services such as collection site fees, lab work and medical review officer (MRO) fees. You should see these charges together on one bill so you know all services are included.
WDTC offers owner-operators an annual consortium fee that covers all random testing fees that come up during the year so you don’t have to worry about extra invoices. You’re covered. Just get the test done and return to the road. (The annual fee does not cover breath alcohol tests.)
How long has your consortium been in business?
WDTC was established in 2001. Former U.S. Army medic Mike Bray purchased the company in 2007. WDTC is proud to be a veteran-owned business operating throughout the USA.
