Marine Corps families are assigned a Family Case Worker to provide information and support quarterly. The Marine Corps EFMP also works to review all Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders to ensure families will have access to necessary medical care and educational supports within reasonable distances based upon frequency of required care. The Marine Corps EFMP also works to support families before, during, and after a PCS move to ensure a seamless transition. They also work to identify family members who are eligible to be considered for Priority Housing and/or housing accommodations/modifications, in accordance with appropriate federal law and to endorse eligible family stabilization requests, when appropriate to support unique care requirements.
The Marine Corps uses four enrollment categories, or “Levels of Need,” as guidelines when making assignment decisions, with Level of Need 1 considered least severe and Level of Need 4, the most severe.
The Marine Corps offers reimbursement for up to 20 hours of respite per month for Levels of Need 3 and 4, not respite care. Siblings are not covered. Adult EFM’s are not covered. Each installation sets its own procedures for reimbursement for care. To inquire about reimbursement for respite care, contact your installation’s EFMP office.
