Hi all

just wondering from all of you who have been to OBLC recently, do you need to have all your medical stuff in order before you head down there????? (i.e. physical, dental...now the new PHA) etc.

thanks in advance

PHA= Personal Health Assessment. New requirement. you fill it out online, on AKO (my medical under self service), print it out, call a 1-800 number to make an appointment and go and go over it with a professional. I believe they're thinking it to be done once a year, seems like a extra heavy burden already on people responsible for keeping tabs on all the soldiers.

No, My PHA was not complete when I went to OBLC in Nov. Prior to OBLC, I had gone to the contracted physicians office per PHA.....gotten the EKG, women's tests, hearing, eye, bld tests.........but the results were not "posted" on my medical profile on AKO......and still aren't (it STILL shows as incomplete..... the appt. was in August, by the time my profile is updated, the tests will be OUTdated).

The only test that will hold you back is....HIV, they will "cancel your reservation if it is incomplete". (which happened to me in July)

c.

p.s. there were other people at OBLC with "incomplete PHAs",.....some people had not even heard about PHAs

those that are going to OBLC in JUNE and the near future...... get on AKO and under self-service "my medical" complete the PHA (Personal Health Assessment), call and make your appointment. they draw your labs (i.e. HIV etc) , check your immunizations, get updated immunizations ( Hep A, flu and tetanus are on my list already) etc. the exam we had as part of our commissioning does not apply here--it was for that purpose. You also need to book a panorex xray for ID purposes (just in case) done and they book that as well.

I have heeded OTD2's warning.... and booked mine.....:wink2:
