The Exceptional Family Member Program helps identify and document special medical and/or educational needs of active duty family members and factors those needs into the assignment process. Family members who require special medical or educational services based on a diagnosed physical, intellectual or emotional handicap must be enrolled in this program. Identified disabilities may range from mild to severe. Special needs may include special medical, mental health, developmental or educational requirement, wheelchair accessibility, adaptive equipment, or assistive technology devices and services.
EFMP enrollment does not harm one's military career. The goal of the program is to consider a family member's special need during the assignment coordination process. Sponsors are still deployable according to the needs of the Service.
The checklist and information below should help ensure the process goes smoothly. Please keep in mind, it does take time to collect the required documentation. Schedule an appointment with medical providers and the sponsor should contact the FMRC coordinator ASAP. This process should be initiated up to 6 months prior to your report no-later-than date.
All forms are available through the FMRC office or on www.e-publishing.af.mil.
If you have a family member with a diagnosis of Asthma, ADHD/ADD, depression, anxiety disorder, bipolar, etc, or who is receiving care from a specialist (i.e. pulmonary, neurology, cardiology, or mental health provider) a DD form 2792 MUST be completed by the medical provider providing care. If your family member has never been seen in the Military Treatment Facility, then a DD form 2792 will need to be completed by their assigned primary care provider. If you need an appointment with a military provider please call 225-8864 to schedule.
The Air Force Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) is designed to provide support to military family members with special needs.
