PERS-951: Medical Hold (MEDHOLD). The MEDHOLD program authorizes reservists to be retained on active duty to receive medical treatment for service-connected injury, illness or disease that is incurred or aggravated while on continuous active duty orders of more than 30 days and results in an unfitting condition, as determined by a military physician. If authorized, member will be retained on active duty, with member’s consent, until found fit for duty or until final disposition is determined by the Physical Evaluation Board (PEB). Elective medical/dental treatment is not authorized. Reference SECNAVINST 1770.3 series and NAVADMIN 124/11.
PERS-952: Line of Duty Healthcare (LOD-HC). The LOD-HC program authorizes medical and/or dental care for reservists who incur or aggravate an injury, illness or disease in the line of duty. If authorized, members may receive medical benefits for approved conditions until military physician finds member fit for duty with no additional follow-up required, or until final disposition is determined by the Physical Evaluation Board (PEB). Members on an approved LOD-HC may also be eligible for incapacitation pay. Reference SECNAVINST 1770.3 series.
Do not submit a request for LOD-HC benefits if the condition incurred or aggravated in the line of duty is resolved and no healthcare expenses or lost wages were incurred as a result of the condition.
PERS-953: Medical Retention Review (MRR). An MRR package is submitted to PERS-953 for reservists who develop, or have a material change in, a potentially disqualifying medical condition that is not expected to resolve within 180 days and is likely to prevent member from safely/effectively fulfilling the responsibilities of their grade/designator/rating or interfere with mobilization. PERS-953 adjudicates MRR packages and assigns Physical Risk Classification (PRC) codes. Reference MILPERSMAN 6110-020 and RESPERSMAN 6000-010.
