LOD -During mobilization units must initiate and complete LODs for their Soldiers. Without clear evidence that supports LOD requirements the SRRC will not be able to complete the LOD. It is imperative that units not only create an environment that affords Soldiers the opportunity to seek medical care but that it also acts immediately if circumstances require a LOD. LODs should be processed using the eLOD module. Limited or no eLOD access should not prevent LODs from being initiated, units should utilize the unit rear detachment to upload and process if necessary. If during the RSRP process medical staff determine a LOD is required and has not been initiated by the unit, the Soldier will be referred to the PAD section. The PAD section will use supporting medical documentation and the service member's orders in order to complete the DA form 2173 and LOD memorandum. Formal LOD's cannot be processed through the SRRC.
Medical Records: During the pre-mobilization process units should prepare DD Form 2766s for each Soldier. The pertinent contents of the DD Form 2766 are discussed at the unit mobilization site visit. Questions can be referred to the SRRC Medical Records Room at 915-742-9447. Preparation of the DD Form 2766 with the pertinent contents will facilitate an efficient SRP as well as ensure the information is available for continuity of care while mobilized. The unit should send the prepared DD Form 2766s with all contents to Fort Bliss 30 days prior to its scheduled Fort Bliss SRP. The mailing address is: Mobilization and Deployment Division, DPTMS, Attn: MOBTEAM, 1733 Pleasonton Road, Fort Bliss, Texas 79916 (include a DA 200 and byname roster for each box set). PAD includes the MedPros and Medical Final Out stations, please refer any questions pertaining to those areas to the PAD Section NCOIC at 915-742-6857.
