A TPA can help manage all the logistics of a substance abuse or general occupational health program so you can focus on what you do best.
A TPA would manage your Drug and Alcohol testing program. They work as the liaison between the employers (you) and the testing lab. They maintain required testing records, check that services are completed without any issues (or fix the issues if there are any), and ensure that the company is compliant with federal and state regulations.
There are a lot of logistics and regulations involved with occupational health services, especially if you’re in a federally regulated industry like transportation. Outsourcing those responsibilities to a TPA can save you time and money.
One of the greatest benefits a TPA can provide is the consolidation of bills. Rather than managing invoices from multiple providers for multiple services, the TPA pays the invoices and sends a single bill to the employer.
A TPA can make the whole process easier for employers. TPA’s have a network of occupational health providers that they can plug your employees into. TPA’s also hold and maintain required testing and screening records so you don’t have to worry about managing the paperwork. If an employer encounters an issue with an employee’s services, a TPA can run interference to get the matter resolved quickly.
