If you still have questions, contact your SNC. Once enrollment is complete, a "Q-Code" letter is sent to EFMP assignments (MPF). Families may also need an EFMP verification letter to receive additional supports and EFMP Medical can provide them.

DIS-ENROLLMENT

Enrollment in EFMP remains in effect until the medical or special education needs no longer meet criteria, until the service member is separated from active duty, or until the family member is no longer a military dependent. Dis-enrollment, or removal of the Q-code, is accomplished by presenting the SNC at the MTF with documentation that all of these provisions have been met and no other family member meets EFMP criteria.  To do so you will have to resubmit updated Forms DD 2792 & DD 2792-1.

ANNUAL UPDATES

Service members enrolled in EFMP are responsible for keeping their medical and/or special education documentation current. A review/update is required as the EFM’s condition changes or within six months of family travel or a PCS move. Contact the EFMP-Medical office to do so.
