You can’t. You might be in the only corporate flight department that doesn’t expense physicals.

Who said I was in a corporate flight department?

I've yet to find reason to doubt a thing you've posted, and I don't doubt this.

I can say with some degree of certainty, however, that we never worked for the same department, and you never visited mine.

Truth is, I've had very few employers who paid for medicals. Much like shop tools, those were always the employee's expense.
