MOAA – NDAA Update: Where We’ve Been, Where We Are, and What’s Next

Posted on Updated on

Here’s a link to the article:

NDAA Update: Where We’ve Been, Where We Are, and What’s Next

Here’s the portion about military medicine:

Military Health Care

Despite the success of MOAA’s Virtual Storming the Hill, efforts to include a halt to military medical end strength cuts and the realignment of military treatment facilities (MTFs) in the NDAA remain at risk. While the House version has language supporting these provisions, the Senate version does not.

MOAA is pivoting its focus to the Senate to ensure the House provisions make it through conference. Contact your senator today to express your support for the House provisions.

Even though the Defense Health Agency has announced a delay to all MTF restructuring and billet cuts, we believe legislation is needed to not only slow the process but also bolster reporting requirements and oversight mechanisms at every possible juncture to ensure DHA conducts qualified analysis and planning for any patient care moved out of MTFs.

Posted on Updated on

Here are two good documents that explain the recent PCS/travel updates:

Conditions-Based Movement Fact Sheet

PCS Restart Fact Sheet-QA

 

Here is a newsletter with an article on the restarting of promotion boards:

MyNavy Sailor to Sailor – JUNE 2020

In brief, it says:

  • Although the boards were postponed, those who are selected for promotion can expect to be assigned the original date of rank and receive any back pay and allowances they’re warranted.
  • Sailors’ Official Military Personnel Files will be reviewed as of the original board convening date and their eligibility will remain the same.
  • Deadlines for letters to the board remain the same as originally set, except for the Reserve E-7 Board, which had a deadline of May 18, 2020, to compensate for delays in their eligibility determination. The remaining deadlines remain the same to maintain a fair and impartial balance across the fleet, but Sailors are encouraged to submit a letter if they feel their eligibility is unclear.
  • Officer promotion boards require additional reviews and results are expected to be approved and announced 100 days after a board adjourns.
