  5. 6. Mission of the Physical Evaluation Board <ul><li>Maintain a fit military force and protect the interest of the government! </li></ul><ul><li>To determine fitness for duty . </li></ul><ul><li>To rate members whose injuries/diseases are incurred or aggravated while in receipt of basic pay. </li></ul><ul><li>To compensate members who are unable to complete their careers and to qualify for normal retirement benefits. </li></ul><ul><li>To ensure member’s right to a full and fair hearing. </li></ul>
  6. 7. COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS!
  7. 8. DIAGNOSIS DOES NOT EQUAL DISABILITY!
  8. 9. Common Misconceptions <ul><li>Thinking that the medical board report is the final answer?! The medical board does not have cognizance to make a fitness determination or establish any rights to benefits. It simply states the member’s present state of health. </li></ul>
  9. 10. General Information <ul><li>You are not UNFIT just because the physician thinks you are (PEB determines). </li></ul><ul><li>Be leary of advice given by personnel outside of the DES process. The PEBLO is the duty expert on the DES. </li></ul><ul><li>Rating not required by DOD/PEB to be rated by the VA. </li></ul>
  10. 11. DOD Vs. DVA System <ul><li>DOD </li></ul><ul><li>* Determine a service member’s medical fitness </li></ul><ul><li> for military duty </li></ul><ul><li>* Compensate for a loss of military career earnings </li></ul><ul><li>DVA </li></ul><ul><li>* Determine service connection of disability </li></ul><ul><li>* Compensate for the loss of future civilian earning capacity </li></ul>
  11. 12. FIT Vs. UNFIT Policies <ul><li>The sole standard to be used in making determinations of physical disability as a basis for retirement or separation is: </li></ul><ul><li>“ Unfitness to perform the duties of office, grade, rank, or rating , to include duties during a remaining period of reserve obligation.” </li></ul><ul><li>*SECNAVINST 1850.4E </li></ul>
  12. 13. Fitness Vs. Suitability <ul><li>Fitness : Fit to continue Naval Service based on evidence which establishes member can reasonably perform duties of his/her office, grade, rank or rating. “Mere presence of a diagnosis is not synonymous with a disability.” </li></ul><ul><li>SECNAVINST 1850.4E </li></ul><ul><li>Not necessarily within their specialty or MOS/NEC </li></ul><ul><li>May not be Fit For Full Duty </li></ul><ul><li>Eligible for appropriate assignment </li></ul><ul><li>CAN YOU RESONABLY FULFILL YOUR EMPLOYMENT ON ACTIVE DUTY? </li></ul>
  13. 14. Fitness Vs. Suitability <ul><li>Suitability : “… meets all requirements for an overseas, remote duty or operational assignment.” BUMEDINST 1300.2, encl (1), pg 6 </li></ul><ul><li>Fit finding does not mean member is suitable for: </li></ul><ul><li>- Deployment, PFT, or Special Duties (flying, parachuting, diving, subs) </li></ul><ul><li>Nor does it preclude : </li></ul><ul><li>- MOS/Rating/NEC change </li></ul><ul><li>- Admin Sep resulting from such determination </li></ul><ul><li>*CAN YOU DEPLOY, PT OR GO OVERSEAS? </li></ul>
  14. 15. <ul><li>Amended legislation effective 05 Oct 99: </li></ul><ul><li>- Members w/ 8 yrs active service are eligible for disability compensation, the condition will be rated if found UNFIT and within the line of duty. </li></ul><ul><li>- 8 yrs of active service does not have to be continuous. </li></ul>Existed Prior To Service (EPTS)
  15. 16. <ul><li>Members with medical waivers: - If no service aggravation is detected within 180 days, separate without the disability evaluation (Entry Level Sep) - If detected after 180 days, must enter DES process - If service aggravated must have a Med Board </li></ul>Existed Prior To Service (EPTS)
  16. 17. Administrative Processing <ul><li>If you are being processed for any kind of misconduct, your board will/may be suspended/terminated! </li></ul><ul><li>Processing for punitive discharge and processing for administrative discharge, due to misconduct, shall take precedence over processing for disability. </li></ul><ul><li>When a discharge for misconduct does not result, disability processing shall resume (note that updates on your medical condition will probably be needed) </li></ul>
  17. 18. Fitness Vs. Suitability <ul><li>Admin Separation : Navy </li></ul><ul><li>- Initiated by member or command </li></ul><ul><li>- Based upon “medical condition not amounting to a disability” </li></ul><ul><li>- Voluntary requests initiated with or without a “fit to continue naval service” finding from PEB </li></ul><ul><li>- Documentation from Medical Officer confirms that condition exists which prevents member from performing </li></ul><ul><li>Characterization of Honorable </li></ul><ul><li>Ref: MILPERSMAN 1910-120 </li></ul>
  18. 19. Fitness Vs. Suitability <ul><li>Administrative Separation : USMC </li></ul><ul><li>- Initiated by command only </li></ul><ul><li>- Based upon medical condition (not a disability) which interferes with duties; confirmed by Medical Officer </li></ul><ul><li>- Notification and counseling IAW applicable directives must be accomplished before initiating process </li></ul><ul><li>Characterization of Honorable </li></ul><ul><li>Ref: MCO P1900.16 AND MCO P1070.12J </li></ul>
  19. 20. Purpose Of Medical Boards <ul><li>To report upon the present state of health of any member of the armed forces and as an administrative board by which the convening authority or higher authority obtains a considered clinical opinion regarding the physical status of service personnel. </li></ul><ul><li>To produce documentation that serves as the source document for fitness and disability determinations by the PEB and for assignment and retention decisions by PERS-82 or MMSR-4. </li></ul>
  20. 21. Medical Board Members Are Made Of: <ul><li>• Your reporting physician who believes that </li></ul><ul><li>you may not be fit for duty. </li></ul><ul><li>An alternate member appointed at the </li></ul><ul><li>discretion of the convening authority (CA). </li></ul><ul><li>A physician who is usually the senior medical officer of that specialty. (Convening Authority) </li></ul><ul><li>If in a reserve status, at least one member must be a reservist. </li></ul>
  21. 22. <ul><ul><li>MEDICAL BOARD REPORTS ARE REFEERRED TO PEB WHEN: </li></ul></ul>1. The attending physician/convening authority believes that the service member is unfit for duty and not likely to become fit for duty within a reasonable amount of time. 2. When PERS-82 or MMSR-4 denies a period of limited duty that had been recommended by the medical board. 3. In the case of a reservist with a Notice of Eligibility, it is believed the service member will not become qualified within 12 week.

  31. 32. Physical Evaluation Board Informal PEB (IPEB) Located in Washington, D.C. This informal board normally consists of: Marine Colonel Navy Captain Doctor-Navy Captain/CDR Case file normally stays 2 weeks with the board.
  32. 33. <ul><li>The medical board report is initially reviewed by this panel and decides if: </li></ul><ul><li>The service member is FIT or UNFIT for duty. </li></ul><ul><li>If unfit, what is the disability rating?

  34. 35. LINE OF DUTY INVESTIGATIONS <ul><li>Reference is JAGMAN Chapter 2 </li></ul><ul><li>Inquiry used: </li></ul><ul><li>To determine whether an injury or disease was incurred in the line of duty. </li></ul><ul><li>Whether it was aggravated by military duty. </li></ul><ul><li>Whether it was incurred or aggravated due to the member’s intentional misconduct or willful negligence. </li></ul>

  38. 39. <ul><ul><ul><li>FIT TO CONTINUE: </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>You have been found FIT by the PEB. This DOES NOT mean that you are FIT FOR FULL DUTY! </li></ul><ul><li>This finding means that you may be eligible for appropriate assignment. </li></ul><ul><li>Nor does it preclude subsequent temporary determinations of unsuitability for deployment or PRT/PFT participation or administrative action resulting from such determinations. </li></ul>
  39. 40. FIT TO CONTINUE: <ul><li>This means that you can still reasonably fulfill your employment on active duty! </li></ul><ul><li>Your next step is an Operational Suitability Screening. </li></ul>
