SOLDIERS will face fewer trips
to the medical centre when the
Periodic Health Examination
(PHE) replaces the Annual
Health Assessment (AHA) and
Health Examination (CPHE) in
July this year.
Joint Health Command's
Directorate of Military Medicine
announced the new system to reduce
the number of medical examinations
in the ADF.
The system will also be linked
with a member's medical employ-
ment classification (MEC) for more
responsive reporting of medical indi-
vidual readiness (IR) status.
Army members under 40 will
undertake a PHE every three years.
The examination will be held
every two years for members aged
between 40 and 50 and annually for
everyone over 50.
The new timeframes reflect a
risk management approach to health
assessments and the likelihood of
increased illness and disease with
age. The measure is aligned to best
civilian medical practice.
A transition program is being
developed for health staff in the con-
duct of the PHE and the workings of
the new MEC system.
As part of this process, routine
AHAs will be phased out and cease
on March 4 this year.
Reserve members who need an
AHA for a financial benefit can con-
tinue to have one until June 30.
Work is underway to develop
alternative procedures for reserv-
ists to satisfy the eligibility crite-
ria for the Reserve Health Support
Allowance from July 1.
For medical IR purposes, an
in-date CPHE and a status of MEC 1
or 2 will satisfy the IR requirements
during the period March 4 to June 30.
Medical centres have proce-
dures in place to manage medical
IR reporting requirements during the
New pre- and post-deployment
health screens will be introduced in
March and will replace the pre- and
A new Health Directive 222 --
Health Requirements for deployed
ADF personnel will be released with
Depending on health require-
ments, screens might be different for
each operation. Operation-specific
pre- and post-deployment screens
will be available from the Joint
Health Command, Garrison Health
Operations website and webforms.
Medical change: The health assessment and comprehensive preventative
health examination will no longer be held every year under a new system that
takes effect in July.
Soldiers under 40: PHE every three years.
Soldiers 40-50: PHE every two years.
Soldiers over 50: PHE every year.
Annual Health Assessments cease on
March 4 for full-time personnel.
Reservists can continue to have AHAs unt
June 30 if required.
New pre- and post-deployment health
screens will be introduced in March.
