The Man in White LLC launched an Internet-based "Healthcare Touch Point" for professional truckers, www.TheManInWhite.org.


This free website serves as a directory and "concierge service" for truckers' healthcare needs at home and on the road. It provides convenience in locating and scheduling appointments, procuring possible discounts, and even assistance with parking big rigs at or near healthcare facilities across the country.

In early 2010, TMIW purchased the controlling interest in MEDtriarch LLC, which contracts with thousands of healthcare providers that cater to uninsured and under-insured consumers across the country. This network includes 1,971 urgent care centers; 523 diagnostic imaging centers, hundreds of medical specialists, and thousands of clinical blood-testing facilities.

"Our internet presence represents an instant coast-to-coast access and assistance for healthcare resources for professional truck drivers where they need us most, i.e., on the road to staying healthy", says Gail Urban, RN. For example, a trucker who has just dropped off a delivery can contact agents for assistance in locating & scheduling healthcare appointments; identifying accepted insurance and co-pays; negotiating discount pricing for uninsured truckers; resolving billing disputes with healthcare providers; locating medical products; synchronizing prescription pick up at major pharmacies; locating medical specialists; discounted DOT physicals and drug testing; nutritional products; and over 4,000 blood lab collection centers.

The majority of the participating healthcare providers will allow a $10 taxi-credit for truckers parking within 5 miles of their facilities.

The website data is free to all truckers on the road and in their hometowns; however, there is a $20 annual fee for "personal assistance." Revenue streams are derived mainly from advertising. TMIW will also offer corporate rates.
