As the MRO, you must do the following as you make the determinations needed for a verification decision:
(a) You must conduct a medical interview. You must review the employee’s medical history and any other relevant biomedical factors presented to you by the employee. You may direct the employee to undergo further medical evaluation by you or another physician.
(b) If the employee asserts that the presence of a drug or drug metabolite in his or her specimen results from taking prescription medication, you must review and take all reasonable and necessary steps to verify the authenticity of all medical records the employee provides. You may contact the employee’s physician or other relevant medical personnel for further information.
