DoDMERB Remedial Good or Bad?


Apr 6, 2016
I have received an ROTC Scholarship for the ECP. I was just asked for additional information regarding my asthma and atopic dermatitis. Asthma was treated completely by the age of 7 and atopic dermatitis by the age of 3. As both cases were treated before the age of 7 I thought that it would not disqualify me. I am very excited to begin my journey as an ROTC cadet and would not want anything to jeopardize my chances. Thank you.

Getting a remedial request is neither good nor bad. They want additional information to be able to make their decision of qualified or disqualified. Follow the request and supply the information they are looking for. If would be great if in your doctor records there is something that says atopic dermatitis and Asthma have been resolved. I would think that having both conditions so young would not be disqualifying and maybe they just want to look at the records for confirmation. Here is a flow chart for the remedial process

Provide any medical records you have that shows what you say up above. The sooner the better.

Here is the link to the DoD Instruction DoDMERB uses to determine qualified or DQ:

Look at pg 17 item 11 for asthma and page 36 item 22 for atopic dermatitis. I am not a doctor but seems like you should be fine.
