DA Form 7246, Exceptional Family Member Program Screening Questionnaire is a form filed by service members when enrolling a family member into the Exceptional Family Member Program - or EFMP. This form serves as a summary of the health condition and needs of that family member and later plays a role when selecting assignments for the service member. The EFMP is a program that works throughout all branches of the Military together with civilian agencies to provide a comprehensive and coordinated approach to medical, educational, housing, and personnel services for families with special needs. The Army EFMP includes both personal support and family support functions.
The latest version of the form - often incorrectly referred to as the DD Form 7246 - was released by the Department of the Army (DA) on June 1, 2009. An up-to-date DA Form 7246 fillable version is available for digital filing and download below or can be found through the Army Publishing Directorate website.
