Purpose

The DOD Deployment Health Assessment program ensures that all Service members who were deployed for more than 30 days boots on ground are monitored periodically for both physical and mental health concerns.

The EpiData Center Department (EDC) Application Development and Data System Support Division developed and maintains the electronic Deployment Health Assessment (EDHA) system. Five deployment health assessments are currently in use to monitor Service member health throughout their deployment cycle and up to 3 years after they return. EDC epidemiologists in the Behavioral and Operational Health Division utilize the information within the assessments to monitor overall compliance and completion, positive screens for physical and mental health concerns, and provider referrals.

The assessments will become a part of your official medical record and can be used to document previous and deployment health issues. Documentation of any health concern is vital to Deployment readiness and will exist as a legal record which can be accessed later if applying for Disabilities through Veterans Affairs.

The compliance timeframes for each assessment are:

  • DD 2795 Pre-Deployment Health Assessment
    To be completed no earlier than 120 days prior to start of deployment
  • DD 2796 Post Deployment Health Assessment
    To be completed between 30 days before and 30 days after return from deployment
  • DD 2900 Post Deployment Re-Assessment (PDHRA)
    To be completed between 90-180 days after returning from deployment
  • DD 2978 Deployed Mental Health Assessment (DMHA)
    Two surveys to be completed between 181-545 days and 546-910 days after returning from deployment
PDHRA and DMHA Compliance

The PDHRA is required regardless of the number of days after return from theater. After 180 days, both the PDHRA and the DMHA are due.

Early completion of the PDHRA is allowed only for Service members separating from the Navy or Marine Corps.

The final DMHA is required regardless of the number of days since return from deployment. After 910 days, the final DMHA is still required.
