Getting Ready for Your Physical

You will need to fill out an application form at the FAA MedExpress website: https://medxpress.faa.gov. The application will ask for basic questions about your health history. If you don’t know the answer or are unsure how to answer, you can call Dr. Frost at (641) 653-2437. At any point, you can exit and return later to complete. Upon completion of the application, you will be provided a confirmation number. You will need to bring that number to your appointment. After you complete the MedExpress form, you will have 60 days to get your aviation physical.

Make your appointment by calling the Hedrick Clinic at (641) 653-2437. Cost: $175.00.

Bring any pertinant medical records (or have them forwarded from your regular provider) and a list of any current medications and dosages with you to your physical.
