The Periodic Health Assessment (PHA) is an annual requirement for all active duty service members during their birth month. PHA appointments are essential to assess numerous various aspects of care as they relate to a specific service members need. During the PHA Individual Medical Readiness (IMR) requirements and Deployment-Related Health Assessments are identified, preventative health education and occupational driven screenings are conducted, and medical referrals are placed as needed.
There are two significant changes to the PHA process.
1. An online assessment must be completed
2. The PHA now requires two appointments in Medical Home Port
Every active duty service member must book an appointment and complete an online self-assessment prior to their appointment date. The first appointment will be scheduled with a Medical Readiness Corpsmen. At the conclusion of that visit the PHA follow-up appointment will be scheduled with an MHP Provider. The second appointment must take place in order for the PHA to be updated in the Medical Readiness Reporting System (MRRS). *The second appointment may be conducted via the telephone.
