EFMP – Enrollment

To help oversee the quality of outpatient services at WBAMC, the Military Health System rolled out a single survey for all military treatment facilities across all services, called the Joint Outpatient Experience Survey (JOES), in 2016. The survey welcomes patients at DoD Military Treatment Facilities (MTFs) the opportunity to voice outpatient experiences to compare and standardize beneficiary visits for superior care.

Exceptional Family Member Program – Enrollment

The Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) includes a variety of personnel, medical, and family support functions. Enrollment is a major component of the program and is mandatory for all military personnel who have a member of their family with a medical or educational disability.

By submitting a completed DD 2792, EFM Medical Summary and/or the DD 2792-1, EFMP Educational Summary, the military member identifies that a family member has a special need. Information about the family member’s condition including diagnosis, type of provider(s), frequency of care, medication, and special accommodations is documented on the forms. The information is used during the time that a service member is being considered for a new assignment to insure that the service member’s family member can obtain necessary care at the new location.

Although each of the Military Services handles the enrollment somewhat differently, there are some commonalities:

  1. Each Service uses the Department of Defense forms (DD 2792 and DD 2792-1)
  2. Each Service submits the completed forms to the receiving location for review.
  3. The receiving location indicates whether care is available.
  4. The DD 2792 medical form is reviewed by medical personnel,
  5. The DD 2792-1 is reviewed by educational personnel,
  6. All of the information is confidential and private, and on a need to know basis.

Military personnel, depending upon the Service, can pick up the necessary forms as follows:

Army – At the military treatment facility – ask for the EFMP office.

Marine Corps – At Marine Corps Community Service. Ask for the EFMP manager.

Navy – At the military treatment facility. Ask for the EFMP Coordinators’ Office.

Air Force – At the military treatment facility. Ask for the Special Needs Information and Assignment Coordination (SNIAC) officer.

These individuals can also explain the process for getting the forms completed, and for returning them.
