The Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP)

The EFMP is a program implemented by the United States Department of Defense and provides support and various services to U.S. military family members with special needs. This includes spouses, children, and dependent adults. The proper forms should be completed by a sponsor, spouse, primary care provider, or by school personnel.

EFMP enrollment is available for servicemen in any military branch, and each branch of service is capable of providing a wide range of medical, educational, personnel, and family support functions.

Military members enroll in the program if they have one or more family members with a diagnosed physical, intellectual, developmental, or psychological condition that needs specialized attention, medical care or educational services.

To confirm enrollment, servicemembers need to file DD 2792 and DD 2792-1 forms and submit them with all necessary attachments to an Army Medical Treatment Facility (MTF). The EFMP Case Coordinator will then conduct an administrative review of the provided forms and forwards them to the appropriate Regional Health Command (RHC).

The RHC reviews the documents and determines eligibility. If the application is approved, the RHC downloads the data into the EFMP database on the Army Personnel Network. After that, the Case Coordinator will inform the Soldier about their successful enrollment.
