When should the MEB process actually start.

I am trying to figure out on when my MEB process should have started. I recieved a profile from my CBHS PCM on August 9th 2010. I was contacted by the nurse case manager in regards to me being referred into the MEB process shortly after this. I had asked about my packet at the beginning of September and was informed that my packet had not even been started because they was waiting for the NARSUM. I am just wondering if the MEB does not start until they recieve the NARSUM or could it be started prior to having the actual NARSUM complete.

If your waiting for a NARSUM, your MEB has already started.

xeno,
Thanks for the reponse. I think I may have worded the question wrong. The MEB office recieved my NARSUM on the 23rd of September. According to the MEB/PEB page on AKO it is saying that my MEB was not started until 6 October, which is when I first seen the physician that is at the MEB office, even though I was referred in August and contacted by the nusre case manager shortly there after. I thought that the process was suppose to have started shortly after I was first reffered to have the MEB and not 60 days later. Everytime I had asked about my packet I kept getting told that it would start as soon as they recieved my NARSUM. Basically I am trying to find out if this is normal or if the MEB office where I am at is just finding away around the system.
