INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING DD FORM 2807-2,
ACCESSIONS MEDICAL PRESCREEN REPORT
1. This form is to be completed by each individual who requires medical processing in accordance with Department of Defense Instruction (DODI)
6130.03, “Physical Standards for Appointment, Enlistment, or Induction” and DODI 1304.02, “Accession Processing Data Collection Forms.” This
form must be completed by the applicant with the assistance of the recruiter, parent(s), or guardian, as needed.
2. Replaces the existing medical prescreen form (DD Form 2807-2, AUG 2011). Additional questions have been added to improve its usefulness to the
accessions medical pre-screening process. The questions are intended to provide the U.S. Military Entrance Processing Command (USMEPCOM) with
health history information necessary to identify conditions commonly related to medical causes for separation during basic and follow-on training (per
P.L. 105-85, Div. A, Title V, S 532).
3. Use of medical history information facilitates efficient, timely, and accurate medical processing of individuals applying for Service in the United
States Armed Forces or United States Coast Guard. Positive responses do not automatically result in disqualification but are necessary to prompt further
explanation that will be used to determine medical qualification. Medical history information assists USMEPCOM medical personnel in the medical
prescreening of applicants. Accurate responses to all questions are critical and all positive responses must be fully explained. Applicant responses to
questions may be verified using electronically obtained medical history by the USMEPCOM. Medical history information will be used by the
Department of Defense for continuity of care purposes if and when an applicant accesses into the Armed Forces or Coast Guard. Supporting medical
information in the form of historical medical records may also be attached to the Service member’s medical record. Medical history information
collected by the USMEPCOM during accession medical processing will serve as the foundation for a Service member’s lifecycle medical treatment
4. The completed DD Form 2807-2 along with all substantiating and supporting medical documents must be delivered to USMEPCOM for review prior
to scheduling the applicant for medical examination. All documents must be submitted for review in accordance with standards below. After review, the
Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS) will notify the Recruiting Service of the applicant’s status.
