The Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) is a mandatory enrollment program, established per Army Regulation 608-75, November 2006, that works with other military and civilian agencies to provide comprehensive and coordinated medical, educational, housing, community support and personnel services to Families with special needs. Soldiers enroll in the program when they have a Family member with a physical, emotional, developmental or intellectual disorder requiring specialized services so their needs can be considered in the military personnel assignment process.

All Family members must be screened and enrolled (if eligible) when the Soldier is on assignment instructions to an OCONUS area for which command sponsorship/ Family member travel is authorized, and the Soldier elects to serve the accompanied tour. This screening consists of medical records review for all Family members and developmental screening for all children 72 months of age and younger.

The Exceptional Family Member Program Office at Reynolds Army Community Hospital is located on the first floor at the North entrance in room #1B140. Come by to pickup a Summary Report or for information regarding enrollment criteria. The EFMP Office provides information and administrative assistance for family members enrolling in the Exceptional Family Member Program such as updating, enrolling and disenrolling.

Routine updates are scheduled with your Primary Care Manager or treating physician.
