Yearly Preventive Health Assessments:
Preventive Health Assessments (PHA): This is the annual screening that has replaced the former five-year physicals. This individual medical readiness (IMR) assessment is completed during one’s birth month annually and consists of six elements:
Fully Medically Ready (1 FMR) - Current in all six elements.
Partially Medically Ready (2 PMR) - Lacking any readiness laboratory studies, immunizations, or medical equipment.
Not Medically Ready (3 NMR) - Service members in Dental Class 3 or with a deployment limiting condition (including those hospitalized or convalescing from serious illness or injury), personnel under evaluation by a Medical Evaluation Board (MEB) or Physical Evaluation Board (PEB), including those on limited duty. Additionally, Reserve Component service members who are classified as Temporarily Not Physically Qualified (TNPQ) in Medical Retention Review (MRR) status, in Line of Duty (LOD) status, and/or Temporarily Not Dentally Qualified (TNDQ) are not medically ready.
Not Medically Ready (4 NMR) - Inability to determine medical readiness status because of missing health record, overdue PHA or Dental Class 4.
Pre-Deployment Screening (preDHA): The patient must come in to Medical Readiness, located in the DHC, to have an initial screening. In addition, the patient must complete a Pre-Deployment Health Assessment online survey within 60 days prior to the deployment date and have a current PHA with 1 FMR status as explained in the Preventive Health Assessments (PHA). The final screening appointment will be completed with a provider in the Deployment Health Center.
Post-Deployment Health Assessment (PDHA, DD Form 2796): This is a physical and psychological health screening to be completed within 30 days of returning from deployment. You must complete the on-line survey before you will be scheduled for an appointment with a DHC provider.
