The Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP)

The EFMP is a program run by the U.S. Department of Defense. The program was designed to provide support and services to United States military family members with special needs including spouses, children, and dependent adults. Servicemembers may enroll in the EFMP  if they have a family member or family members with a diagnosed physical, developmental, intellectual, emotional or psychological condition that requires specialized medical attention or educational services.

Individuals need a completed the DD 2792 and DD 2792-1 forms to enroll in the program. The forms should be completed by a spouse, primary care provider, or sponsor. Participation in the EFMP and access to the wide range of medical, educational, and family support functions it provides is available for servicemen of every military branch.

The completed forms are submitted to an Army Medical Treatment Facility (MTF) with all necessary attachments. The EFMP Case Coordinator reviews the provided data and forwards the forms to the appropriate Regional Health Command (RHC) who will then determine eligibility.

If the application is approved, the RHC downloads the data into the EFMP database on the Army Personnel Network and the Case Coordinator informs the Soldier of the success of the application.
