Exceptional Family Member Program Assignment Coordination

What is assignment coordination?

The military mission is the driving force behind the assignment process, but the Exceptional Family Member Program enrollment ensures that a family member's special needs are considered in the process. Assignment coordination occurs when the personnel command requests medical or educational professionals to review a family member's documented needs (available because of the EFMP enrollment) to determine availability of services at the projected location.

Why is assignment coordination important?

Assignment coordination is important because access to appropriate medical and educational services may be limited in some areas, especially in overseas and remote locations. When assignment coordination occurs, family members receive the care and support they require, and service members can focus more clearly on mission-related responsibilities.
