Army MTF EFMP Practitioner Completes DA Form 5888
Only an Army MTF EFMP practitioner completes Part B of DA Form 5888. The EFMP practitioner reviews the completed DA Form 7246 and appropriate medical records and discusses the medical and educational needs of the Family members.
Keep the following in mind:
- Unless there is sufficient recent information available, children under 72 months are required to have a physical exam and a developmental screen.
- A physical examination is required for Family members over 72 months of age in the absence of sufficient medical data on which to base a decision about the existence of qualifying special need.
- If examinations are necessary, the Family members are asked to make the appropriate appointments with their health care providers and make a follow-up appointment with the EFMP office.
