Profile/ STR review

Good afternoon,

I was given a P3 profile by Ortho for my knees and back and told that I'd be entering the MEB process, but as I've found out, I have to be accepted into it and the second signature given first. I received an email from a PEBLO on Friday after 2 months of waiting stating that I'd have my profile reviewed to see if I needed to begin the formal process. Today I came in for duty only to see that my P3 had been removed and there was an email stating "After further review of your chart, it has been determined that no MEB is needed at this time. Please follow up with your Primary Care Provider, or the Provider that had written the Profile/requested the STR review if you want further discussion. " Is there any recourse for me?

Welcome to the PEB Forum! :)

Well, I would highly consider performing/implementing the specific actions as annotated in the email then decide how to proceed from that particular point in time. Take care!

Thus, I quite often comment that "possessing well-informed knowledge is truly a powerful equalizer!"

Best Wishes!

My MEB was kicked back as well. I went and spoke with the OMBUDSMAN and they told me that the write up basically said that all of my treatment options weren't exhausted yet. So, all I can say is speak with your PCM and figure out what else is expected from you in terms of treatment options. Hope that helps.
