    Finally got an update this morning after starting the process back in April. At lot of waiting but reading here through this process we knew it was the norm. A little more wise through this whole process and wanted to find out what the next step is? Will there be more medical testing in order to commission before she finishes college? Concerned for her hearing test and the potential for change a couple of years down the road.

    Code Description
    D171.30 Endometriosis
    D122.30 Hearing loss exceeding medical accession standards
    D259.50 Waiver Approved - AROTC

    Thanks everyone
    Mel

    I'm not an expert since my DD only had one DQ code on her portal, but that looks like disqualification for three different items - and only one of them was waived so far. Have you submitted requested documentation for the other two?

    Sorry - is it two different items, not three? Does the code D259.50 mean both are waiver approved, because that is the same code on my DD's portal, too? I'm not sure...

    She's approved overall. When I got to check her status it says "Waiver Approved". And yes we submitted the documentation back in Apr.

    My DS has a single D122.30 Hearing Loss on his DoDMERB. We know from subsequent testing the overall average was normal except for one number in one ear out of range. How did it take for you DD to obtain the waiver? Was it an easy process? Did she have to go back for additional testing? Thanks You for any feedback.

    Typically, there is a commissioning physical, as well. These issuse could come up again, especially if they have become worse, or anything else that is new.
