Definition: The Post-Deployment Health Reassessment (PDHRA) is a health screen designed for all Service members who have returned from deployment – Active, National Guard, Reserve, and Individual Ready Reserve. The PDHRA is an effort to protect the health and well-being of those returning from combat. Three- to six-months post deployment, individuals become eligible to participate in the PDHRA program. The PDHRA is a process designed to identify deployment-related health concerns and facilitate access to care. The PDHRA provides education, screening, assessment and access to care for a wide variety of questions and concerns that Service members may have about their health after they return from deployment.
The PDHRA extends the continuum of care for Service members' deployment-related health concerns.
Upon completion of the Service member portion of the DD2900, a licensed Physician Assistant (PA) or Nurse Practitioner (NP) will review the document with the Service member and discuss any responses suggesting a possible need for further evaluation or treatment. The Service member is also provided education regarding concerns and resources.
If the Service member has a PHYSICAL or MEDICAL or BEHAVIORAL HEALTH condition that could be related to deployment, they will be referred to a military treatment facility.
