EFMP Categories

  1. 1. Exceptional Service to Exceptional People EFMP Liaison Orientation 1 Professional Development and Training Team EFMP Categories There are six EFMP enrollment categories. These enrollment categories are based on:  Type of Specialist required  Frequency of requirements  Availability of services  Severity of medical and/or educational needs Category I: Category I enrollment is for monitoring purposes with no limitation of assignment. This category is used to make the Naval Personnel Command (or NPC) aware that there are mild issues, or that there have been issues in the past that are no longer relevant (for example, greater than five years cancer free). Category I enrollees will need to update their status every three years or if their condition or issue worsens. Examples of Category I conditions:  Mild hypertension  Seasonal allergies  Easy to accommodate educational needs Category II: Category II is used to identify and pinpoint duty stations and assignments where the Navy can ensure that the EFM needs are met. Typically a Category II enrollee can be treated by a general provider (i.e. a regular medical doctor) and don’t require specialized services. This category may also indicate that there are uncomplicated educational needs that need to be addressed. Examples of Category II conditions:  Hypertension  Mild migraines  Eczema  Stable ADHD/ADD Category III: Category III enrollees are typically ineligible for overseas assignments based on the level of care required by their condition. These enrollees require specialized services which require that they

Category III may also indicate that the EFM has a complex or specialized educational need. Examples of Category III conditions:  Moderate disabilities  Diabetes Type II  Asthma  Most behavioral and dental health needs Category IV: Individuals in the EFMP Category IV have conditions that require specialized care and treatment. Category IV requires that the EFM live in major medical areas in the continental United States and within 50 miles of a major medical treatment facility. Category IV EFM’s may require special housing needs such as living in single story housing. Like Category III, Category IV can also indicate complex specialized educational needs. There are eight Category IV locations in CONUS. Category IV Locations  Groton  Bethesda  Portsmouth  Charleston  Jacksonville  Pensacola  San Diego  Bremerton Examples of Category IV conditions:  Severe lupus  Cerebral palsy  Chronic heart disease  Major depression or other mental health conditions Category V: The needs of Category V enrollees are highly specialized, complex and severe and require continuity of care best served at CONUS homesteading locations.
  3. 3. Exceptional Service to Exceptional People EFMP Liaison Orientation 3 Professional Development and Training Team This category includes provisions for homesteading in an area that can support both sea and shore assignments. Homesteading will not preclude the requirement for sea/shore rotation of the sponsor, nor will it interfere in the unaccompanied assignment of a sponsor, providing the needs of the EFM member are addressed. There are five Category V locations. Category V “Homesteading” Locations  Norfolk, VA  San Diego, CA  Jacksonville, FL  Bremerton, WA  Washington, DC Examples of Category V conditions:  Multiple and/or severe disabilities  Most forms of cancer  Autism  Extensive care needs Category VI: Category VI is for temporary enrollments for short durations. Typically the family will remain in one area during the duration of the diagnostics, evaluation or treatment. The need for enrollment is updated between six and twelve months based on condition. Examples of Category VI conditions:  High risk pregnancy  Premature infant  Undergoing current short-term treatment or counseling
