First of all, MEPS is not the approving authority for medical waivers. The MEPS Chief Medical Officer can medically disqualify you, but the service branch you are applying for can WAIVE the medical disqualification. In the case of the Army, it is the USAREC Command Surgeon. If you medical waiver was disapproved, then you are pretty much done unless later the condition improves and you can get medical documentation that proves that the current condition is resolved. People will advise you to call your congressman or whatever, but that never works for medical disqualifications. They are going to side with the regulations and the decision of the medical waiver approving authority.
Well PFC, some things can be waived, while others can't. If it's a serious condition that could potentially put you or others in danger, especially in the state the military is in now, the Army will not accept the burden.... When you get time Google AR 40-501 standard of medical fitness. This is the regulation the MEPS use to determine if you are fit to serve. Look in chapter 1 or 2 for new enlistees and see if your condition is listed there. If it's there, it will tell you what will disqualify you from service....... if it's not listed, then you can fight it......
I was discharged in 2000 for a condition I knew I did not have. Fought for years to get back in. I had to spend thousands of dollars proving I did not have a respiratory illness that the Army diagnosed me with. I finally re-enlisted in 2016. Took a lot of work, time and money; but I was approved in the end. Your issues seems to be that they are saying you have an illness that is not waiverable, you need to prove you do not have that illness. Best of luck too you PFC!
