What is EFMP?

The Air Force Exceptional Family Member Program is designed to provide support to military family members with Medical or Educational needs. The Air Force EFMP is comprised of a medical component (EFMP-M), community support element (EFMP-FS), and assignments (EFMP-A).
The Medical Group coordinates the medical portion of the EFMP program. Enrollment, medical support, and PCS clearance for family travel are provided through EFMP-M. The primary goal of EFMP is to ensure the medical and educational needs of EFMs can be met at a new assignment location. EFMP enrollment information enables personnel to proactively consider a family member's special need requirements during the assignment process and to pinpoint the assignment to a location with appropriate resources that address the needs of the family member at the gaining location. Successful implementation requires up-to-date enrollment information and extensive coordination among the personnel, medical and educational communities.

How do I know if I meet criteria for EFMP?
An Exceptional Family Member is a dependent who has a diagnosed physical, educational or mental health condition that requires ongoing specialized services.

Examples include: 

  • Needs care provided by a medical specialist.
  • Individualized Education Program, IEP, services being provided by the school
  • Individual Family Service Plan, IFSP, services being provided by a local agency for physical/speech/occupational therapies
  • Asthma with daily use of medications
  • Need for adaptive equipment or housing modifications
  • Current mental health needs or any inpatient or intensive outpatient mental health care within the past 5 years.

If you any of the above apply please contact the Special Needs Coordinator.

To enroll in EFMP the paperwork can be initiated by the spouse, sponsor, or the Medical Treatment Facility Staff such as your PCM. The EFMP office can also receive referral information from first sergeants and supervisors.
