Don't forget some AME's will do basic med as well. Mine did for the same price $100. I also did as others, contacted my PCP and shared printed data with her, she texted me and said no issue ( like DOT physicals she does)....she would sign the paperwork annually at the conclusion of my annual well care physical. YMMV

The great part of having your PCP do BasicMed as part of your Annual physical is that insurance will usually cover it. Mine did!

I live in So Cal. But I am a kaiser member, and had my PCP do my BasicMed. I do have a very good relationship with my PCP, and have been seeing him for probably close to 10 years now. But he had signed me off in the past for Scuba Diving. I do have an irregular medical history too. So clearly he felt that I was more than healthy enough for Scuba. I figured no harm in asking about BasicMed. And no surprise, he had no problem with it. There was a single sticking point though. It asks for some eye pressure test, that he had no way of doing. However, I had just seen my eye doctor the week prior. So a quick phone call later, and it was all squared away for the next four years.
