    What medical history do the physicians conducting the exam have access to? Don't HIPA rules prevent that?

    For your DoDMERB physical, the physician only has the medical history you provide on the DODMets form and what you verbally tell the physician during the exam. You may need to supply to DoDMERB past medical documentation if some medical issue is identified during the DoDMERB process.

    However, you want to be completely honest during the entire process. Lying to avoid an issue at this point will only cause trouble/separation later on as the issue WILL come up again.

    We are worried about being DQ'd for a minor concussion (football). Any suggestions?
