Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP)

What is the EFMP?

The EFMP is a program offered by each service to support families with special medical and educational needs throughout the service member’s career. Family members should enroll in EFMP when a qualifying condition is diagnosed. Each branch has its own EFMP and enrollment process.

EFMP family support services are also available at your installation. The family support services team is your main point of contact for EFMP information.

They can connect you with:
  • Military Support Services and Resources
  • Community Support Services and Resources
The family support services team can also answer specific EFMP questions based on your branch or installation.

Current Womack EFMP Operations

The Fort Bragg Medical EFMP office has relocated to Joel Clinic.  Appointments for OCONUS screens are being conducted virtually, and EFMP enrollments and updates are being reviewed telephonically, as a precautionary measure to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.  If you have questions regarding a required EFMP action, please email the local EFMP staff.

For additional information on the Exceptional Family Member Program processes and requirements, please visit the U.S. Army Medical Department (AMEDD) EFMP site. 

Womack Exceptional Family Member Program office is conducting minimal face-to-face business at this time. 

In keeping In keeping with the guidance set forth in the Army-Wide Preparedness and Response to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 Outbreak, the following EFMP process changes are in effect:

Virtual OCONUS Screens 

OCONUS screens are conducted via an audio-visual platform, instead of face-to-face. Soldiers and family members may initiate the process by bringing their DA Form 5888 (Family Member Deployment Screening Sheet) to Joel Pediatric Clinic.  DA Form 5888 must be signed by Military Personnel Division prior to submission to our office.

EFMP Enrollments, Updates, and Disenrollment Request Supporting Documents

Documents are accepted via email or fax. An EFMP staff member will book a telephone appointment for an EFMP clinical provider to verify accuracy of submitted enrollment information with the patient or parent.  Most of these appointments are booked within 7 – 10 days of the enrollment documents being submitted. 

Clearance Actions 

Out-processing for soldiers departing Ft. Bragg is conducted face-to-face Monday-Friday: 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m.
Soldiers clearing Fort Bragg will have been pre-cleared if separating from the Army, have no dependents, or have dependents that do not require any EFMP action.
