The DD Form 3024, DoD Periodic Health Assessment (PHA), is to be used during a Service Member’s (SM’s) PHA. Use of this form will ensure completion of the annual PHA and Mental Health Assessment (MHA) requirements.

Disclaimer: The Mil-PHA form was developed to ensure all required PHA elements are captured in a standardized format for providers. It clearly illustrates items to be completed and allows for easy transfer into AHLTA. Once the DoD PHA is fully implemented by all Services and Components, the Mil-PHA will be sunsetted.

As part of the PHA optimization initiative, a standardized, evidence-based, web-enabled assessment tool is being developed for use throughout the DoD. By creating a uniform PHA on a joint system, total force interoperability could be achieved irrespective of duty assignment, Service Component, or Military Treatment Facility.

The newly developed DoD PHA tool will be completed through one form, DD Form 3024. The DoD PHA has been structured into four processes to help health care personnel more efficiently assess the readiness status of all SMs while decreasing the need for unnecessary provider visits for certain SMs. The four processes include: (1) the SM self-assessment, to include questions on mental health; (2) Record review of the SM’s medical record; (3) Completion of the MHA by a trained provider; and (4) final review and summary by a PHA provider who certifies the PHA is complete.

New to the DoD PHA:

  • Some SMs may no longer require a face-to-face encounter with a provider
  • The MHA is included to more efficiently streamline the medical readiness process
  • The PHA provider may also perform the MHA
  • In future state, all applicable Deployment Health Assessments will be completed as part of the DoD PHA

PHA Program Milestones:

  • Published PHA DD Form 3024: Apr 2016
  • Published PHA Program DoDI: Sept 2016
  • Published PHA Program DHA-PI: May 2017
