Exceptional Family Member Program



The Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) is a quality of life program that works to ensure that chronic medical and/or special educational needs for all dependents of active duty personnel are considered during the assignment process.  The EFMP team aims to support qualifying service members and their families through continuity of care, information and referral, and non-medical case management. 

The program has three components:

1.      Identification and Enrollment: Enrollment in the EFMP is required for all service members with dependents who have been identified with chronic medical and/or special educational needs.

2.      Assignment Coordination: A projected assignment location must have both the capability and the capacity to meet the enrolled dependent’s need(s).

3.      Family Support: EFMP Case Liaisons: provide assistance with navigation of systems; provide information/ referral services, and non-medical case management.  The liaisons provide a link between military, local, and national community resources and the EFMP families who utilize support services.
