'Partially Closed' - DoDMERB TMRW!


AROTC 2022
Nov 8, 2017
I have my DoDMERB medical exam tomorrow and I had my eye exam in December 2017.

I just finished all of the survey questions on my medical packet on DoDMETS. I am trying to e-sign the survey because the website says I need to have it signed to bring to the appointment. However it says my status is "Partially Closed" and I cannot sign the packet. It says "Signature Not Permitted."

Why is this happening? I saw on other threads that it is because I have already done the eye exam, but that doesn't explain why it won't let me sign the packet if my exam is scheduled for tomorrow? And do I really need it signed for tomorrow or can I bring the un-signed copy?

Also, the exam date I entered into the DoDMETS system is correct, so that shouldn't be causing the problem.

Can anyone help? I know I waited until the last minute to fill out the packet but I didn't think I would encounter this. Thanks.

It you waited 45 to 60 days then your account will be probably on standby or closed. Happened to me and you need to contact DODMERB about it or your Cadre.
