Pre-Placement Frequently Asked Questions
Do we have to use OHP's Pre-Placement Work Order form?
No. However, the contractor must receive a written request from the department for each applicant that contains all of the information found in the Pre-Placement Work Order form. A department could use an alternate form as long as it provides the same information. Without this form a medical exam cannot be performed by the clinic.
What if none of the contractors can accommodate my request for a large number of exams?
This would be highly unusual and of concern. If this occurs please notify OHP staff.
How do I get the results for the applicants I sent for medicals?
All medical examination results are emailed to an authorized departmental representative. If you would like to be added to the notification list, please contact your departmental representative or Nina Arbet-Brandt @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
What if we need expedited clearance on an applicant?
