On Oct. 1, government insurance exchanges started operating. Some states built their own exchange (14). Some states partnered for certain administrative services with the federal government (17). Some states, wanting no part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act known as Obamacare - Georgia included - decided to let the feds build the exchange (19).
Beginning May 21, 2014, all commercial motor vehicle drivers will be required to have their DOT physicals and associated medical certificates issued by a certified medical examiner. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act developed the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners to enhance the oversight of interstate drivers through the requirements listed under Section 391.41.
