"The Army designed the EFMP to be a comprehensive, coordinated, multi-agency program that provides community support, housing, medical, educational, and personnel services to military Families with an EFM. This web site focuses on your interaction with the medical portion of EFMP."
"The Navy’s Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) assists Navy families with special needs to include:
● Specialized Medical and Dental care
● Developmental requirements
● Special Education requirements
● Accessibility/Adaptive equipment
● Assistive Technology devices and services
● Specific mental health conditions
If you have an exceptional family member, EFMP enrollment is mandatory so that the US Navy can provide you and your family support, to include duty station recommendations that have adequate medical and educational facilities for your family."
"The Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) supports the continuum of care for all eligible sponsors and their family member in order to improve the quality of life for families that support a member with special medical and/or educational needs. EFMP staff and families work together to inform, educate and empower individuals to be the best advocate for themselves and/or their family member(s). The EFMP is a DOD-mandated enrollment program designed to support individual, family and unit readiness."
"EFMP is a Department of Defense program offered by all branches of the military. It is a mandatory enrollment program for all active duty Airmen who have a special needs family member.
The program is comprised of three components: EFMP-Medical (EFMP-M), EFMP-Assignments (EFMP-A) and EFMP-Family Support (EFMP-FS) that work toward a common goal of providing comprehensive and coordinated support to families. EFMP-M supports the EFMP through screening, enrollment and assignment coordination through the Family Member Travel Screening. EFMP-A considers the medical and educational needs of the family when it has been determined that the required services are not available at the Airman’s current or projected assignment location. EFMP-FS is based on Section 563(c) NDAA FY2010 (Public Law 111-84). Support is provided by the Airman and Family Readiness Center (A&FRC) EFMP-FS coordinators to all DoD ID cardholders assigned to the installation or located in the community."
