Frequently Asked Questions

I completed my DD Form 2900 online. Why is my stoplight not green?

Completing the self-assessment portion of the DD Form 2900 online does not fulfill the requirement for PDHRA. You must meet with an HCP who will complete the form and sign it electronically.

  • 0–89 Days: The PDHRA stoplight will become green following a return from deployment to a combat zone if you completed the Post-Deployment Health Assessment (PDHA).
  • 90–180 Days: During days 90–180 following a return from deployment, the stoplight will become amber, which indicates that you need to complete the PDHRA. This is the window during which you should complete your PDHRA.
  • After 180 Days: The PDHRA stoplight will become red, indicating noncompliance with the PDHRA requirement. After you complete the PDHRA requirement, the stoplight in AKO MODS Medical Readiness Portal will become green to indicate the HCP interview.

Will the results of my assessments be shared with my chain of command? Are the assessments confidential?

Information you share during PDHRA screening is confidential and is shared only with those who have a medical need to know.

What happens after the PDHRA process?

Usually, there is no medical need for action. If necessary, the HCP will refer the Soldier for diagnosis. HCPs make referrals for a range of physical and mental issues.

I completed the Soldier’s portion of the DD Form 2900 online. Must I print it and take it to my installation health facility? What is the next step?

No. A Soldier’s DD Form 2900 is recorded in the MODS database, and you do not need to print copies unless needed for the Soldier’s personal records. The PDHRA screening is not complete when the Soldier completes their portion of the DD Form 2900 online. The Soldier is required to complete the interview with an HCP. The PDHRA is complete when the HCP fills in the DD Form 2900 and signs it electronically.

I don’t want to complete the PDHRA. I’m healthy and don’t think I need to waste everyone’s time. Do I have to complete the PDHRA?

Yes. You are required to complete the PDHRA during the designated time because issues develop and may become prevalent later. Documentation in the PDHRA can be a reference for future medical/disability claims.
