    So, my status in DODMERB (as of 11/21/17) is "remedial requested." There is no code next to it, and I did not receive a letter in the mail. I got in touch with my assigned medical technician at DODMERB, and she said that there is no remedial requested, and that my file is in the doc's box for final review. Has anyone experienced this, seeing remedial requested as status but not receiving a remedial? Also, I'm just sort of curious what the timeline is for this. Checking DODMERB every 15 minutes is giving me anxiety:confused:

    Also, I just realized this probably should've gone in the DoDMERB discussion... I don't know how to move it but if it's possible, please feel free to move it! My bad.

    My son's page had remedial requested for a few days, but then it populated with the exact request. Did you check yes on any of the history questions? If not, then it may be a simple error since you said your tech says a remedial has not been requested?

    I did! I was expecting a remedial due to a foot surgery I had a few years back (Kidner procedure, outpatient 2014, doc marked as resolved). This is partly why I'm confused that my tech said a remedial is not being requested. There were one or two other questions I had checked yes to as well.

    It may just indicate that they need to review the info you sent. They'll let you know. I'm guessing they are backed up based on fact that our remedial info was sent over a week ago and is not yet reflected as received on portal. Likely fielding a ton of paperwork right now for ROTC, SA's and other sources.

    Hi Makinna

    My status also went to Remedial Requested no code. I reached out to my assigned person at DODMERB and he was adamant about it still being with the DR for review and it could be there for 30 days before I get any update. I received a conditional scholars appointment last night and they stated that I must clear the remedial before I get the appointment. I reached back out to the P.O.C at Dodmerb and he stated again that it's still under review and they have 30 days ( Jan 08) to complete. It went into this status on December 14th.

    Did your remedial finally give you a code?

    Thanks!

    DS' packet said remedial requested for 8 days this month until today when it switched to an admin code. Emailed his required documents and I figure with the holidays it will be a month or so.

    I have the same issue

    Date of medical data entry was on the 18th of December. On December 19th it says Remedial Requested but still no code. I did marked yes to 3 things and I was expecting remedials but the anticipation is driving me nuts. Still I know it is too soon. Minimum time for answers I have read here is 2 weeks. I check about three times every day but I am not expecting them to fix that until after the Holidays. Still I wish I would now ASAP so I can start addressing those remedials soon.

    Will I receive an physical actual letter on my mailbox or is it just in the DODMERB page?

    I too had a "remedial requested" status on the DoDMERB page. I reached out to the staff on the email provided and they stated that it was in te process of being checked to see if I would need a medical waiver. I was then cleared and had my status change to "qualified" about a week or two later. I don't know if this helps any but I wouldn't sweat it. A watched pot never boils.

    You give me hope, I hope I get a happy ending as you. How much did you waited until reaching out?

    for me I waited about 2 weeks after I received the "remedial requested" status to ask.

    OK I will do that in case that I still don't have an answer by two weeks. Thank you and good luck!

    Yes! I heard back with a remedial code. It looks like for my specific issue it required the physician deciding which remedial I would need rather than the medical technician. It’s a pretty easy process though I just have to scan the records and email to my med tech, which I did! Now waiting on hearing back, but I’m expecting it to take a while because of the holidays.

    I never received a physical letter, my DoDMERB page was updated and I received an email notifying me of the update.
