Pending DQ

I was notified today by DODMERB that I am pending disqualification for asthma/reactive airway disease/exercise induced bronchospasm after age 13. However, I clearly stated on the questionnaire that I last had this at age 11. Why did this happen? It also says it needs an additional AMI for me to be considered for a waiver. It doesn't say where to send this or what it needs. I emailed them asking about why I was DQ'd and they haven't gotten back. Can anyone help me with this?

My guess is that the Additional Medical Information will be to provide proof from your pediatric doctor attesting to the fact you haven't had an issue since 11 and were not on medications for the above issue after 13. They will send you info on whats needed in the AMI via mail and DoDMERB will update site eventual as well.

USNARLY10,

I'm not sure if it will help; however, my DS went through this. First and most important were you prescribed and associated meds after 13. If yes, respectfully, there might not be much you can do. To that end my DS really wanted this so I spared no expense. I found a Dr. that was a specialist in this area. Not only was he a specialist he also worked with the Navy and their divers. Here is the catch, the Navy recognized this Dr's experience which held weight with DODMERB or so I have been told. The Dr. give my son the "S" test. (Sorry, I'm an engineer somebody else can sleep that one. The only thing I understand is math.) Anyway when he completed the test the Dr. reviewed the results and wrote a lettter clearing my DS of any asthma. His letter was sent to DODMERB and they never asked for any further testing. He is now a 1st. Class Mid. I can't promise anybody the same results but if it's something you truly want and can spare the expense then take the time to look for a very good Dr w/ a strong background in this field. Ask if they work with the Navy or understand what the Navy is looking for. We are lucky to live in an area where there is a base this was how I found the Dr. we used. Hope this helps.

If you still haven't found where it says what AMI you need, do this:
1. Go to the DoDMERB Website https://dodmerb.tricare.osd.mil/Applicant/ApplicantData.aspx
2. sign in
3. click "view my correspondence"
4. somewhere in the middle of the page there will be a blue link...click on it...a letter of what AMI you need will show up and it will give you instructions
