All information contained in or related to a Flight Attendants medical file shall be kept confidential and will only be released to those on a need to know

When a disagreement exists over a Flight Attendants ability to work, a Flight Attendant may have a review of the case.
The Flight Attendant may employ a qualified medical examiner of her/his own choosing and at her/his own expense for the purpose of conducting a physical examination.
A copy of the report of the medical examiner employed by the Flight Attendant shall be furnished to the Company within fourteen (14) days following the receipt by her/him of the
findings of the Companys medical examiner. If the report verifies the findings of the Company medical examiner or if the Flight Attendant fails to furnish such report to the Company within said time, no further review of the case shall be
In the event that the report of the physician chosen by the Flight Attendant disagrees with the findings of the physician employed by the Company, the Company will, at the written
request of the Flight Attendant, ask that the two physicians agree upon and appoint, within seven (7) days, a third qualified and impartial physician who is a specialist in the area of the Flight Attendants alleged disability for the purpose
of making a further examination of the Flight Attendant.
The report of the third physician shall be final and binding on all parties, and shall state whether the Flight Attendant is physically fit and whether she/he may
safely be returned to flight status. The third physician shall send a copy of her/his report to the Company physician and to the Flight
Attendants personal physician within seven (7) days after examination, unless an extension is requested. The Company physician will notify the Inflight

Attendants requests for additional time granted by extension to the time provisions of this Section.
