Most AMEs won’t sign a Basic Med form.

I was the first Basic Med that my AME did - he didn't even flinch, just said sure. Then he retired - we just found a new PCP last week. I asked if she would do Basic Med and gave her a copy of my last one. She said that they do CDL exams all the time, and didn't see that this would be any different, so yes, she will do it two years when it comes up again.

The AME I have used for the last 10 years is doing BasicMed exams. Probably best to call them and ask.

In fact, a guy in my doc's practice who happened to be an AME (and who did a previous Class 3 for me) tried to talk my regular Doc out of doing my BasicMed, citing purported liability concerns. Luckily my Doc paid no attention to that advice. If he ever does decline to do it.... I guess I'm going to get a new Doc.

Mine is happy to do either a Basic Med or Medical Certificate.
