The Marine Corps Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) is a mandatory program designed to coordinate change of station assignments for active duty sponsors who have a family member with special needs. When Marines are assigned to locations where their family members have access to required care, it allows the Marine to focus on the mission, enhancing the individual and family readiness.
Marines and families often contact EFMP with recommendations about how the program can better support families and we have been hearing that some TRICARE authorized providers have been charging for completion of the DD Form 2792. This form is used across the Marine Corps to identify the medical requirements of family members for the purpose of EFMP enrollment. Enrolled families must also submit an updated form every three years to ensure that the most current information is available for EFMP assignment coordination review.
The Marine Corps believes that families should not bear the cost of form completion to comply with a DoD-mandated program, and have created reimbursement process. HQMC will authorized reimbursement up to a maximum of $200/package, whichever is less. EFMP-enrolled Marines who are interested in pursuing a reimbursement, should contact their assigned EFMP office for assistance. The Cherry Point EFMP offices are located in the Marine and Family Programs, Bldg. 232, or you can call us at 252-466-7533 or 252-466-8002 for additional information.
