Good afternoon, RP.

My wife and I later last year had our son speak to a military appointed child psychologist as he was displaying a few behavioral issues after my wife gave birth to our second child. He was ultimately diagnosed after several visits with minor/nonclinical ADHD. He doesn't require medication, specified therapy, etc. The only "treatment plan" was to have a few progress report appointments to see how the psychologist's general recommendations on dealing nonclinical ADHD are working.

Unfortunately however, my son was involuntarily enrolled into EFMP regardless of not requiring specialized treatment. My wife and I are frivolously working to get dis-enrolled, but it won't happen in time for my Korea PCS. With that said, EFMP was involved in my command sponsorship paperwork, so it's taking a lot longer than expected.

My command sponsorship packet/paperwork was sent to Korea's offices mid-July, and we are now nearing September without any response. I report to Korea early November, so I am beginning to worry. Did anyone with a dependent enrolled in EFMP experience a long wait time for an approval or denial response?

Perhaps even more specifically, did anyone with dependents with ADHD face any issues obtaining command sponsorship?

Thank you.

If the provider cleared your son to go to Korea and you submitted everything through reassignments to forward to Korea, You probably need to check with reassignments, you should have heard back by now.

SFC,

I spoke with reassignments and they noted that so long as there are no EFMP issues, they will hear back on/around 17 Aug. If there are issues, mid Sept.

If the provider cleared your son when you had his EFMP Screening for the overseas (using the DA Form 5888 for overseas screening), then there shouldn’t be a delay. This is the first time I’ve heard of a delay taking this long once they are cleared by the provider.SGT (Join to see)
