The Department of Defense has submitted to OMB for clearance, the following proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 35).
Title, Form Number, and OMB Number: Medical Screening of Military Personnel; DD Forms 2807-1, 2807-2; OMB Number 0704-[To Be Determined].
Type of Request: New Collection.
Number of Respondents: 850,000.
Responses per Respondent: 1.
Annual Responses: 850,000.
Average Burden per Response: 9.6 minutes.

Needs and Uses: Title 10 USC 504, 505, 507, 532, 978, 1201, 1202, and 4346, require military applicants to meet medical accession standards for enlistment, induction, and appointment to the Armed Forces. This information collection is the basis for determining medical eligibility of applicants based upon their current and past medical history. The General Accounting Office report, “Military Attrition—DoD Could Save Millions by Better Screening Enlisted Personnel,” dated January 1997, instructed the Department of Defense to develop a better method for medically screening military applicants. As a result, the DD Form 2807-1, “Report of Medical History” and the DD Form 2807-2, “Medical Prescreen of Medical History Report,” will be the forms used to collect the necessary data needed from the military applicants to elicit a more accurate picture of their well being and medical history. The information obtained on the DD Form 2807-2 will also identify any medical disqualifying condition(s) prior to the application process and meets the Congressional requirements to obtain the applicant's health care provider and insurance provider.
