    Medical coverage question

    Advertisements
    DB hurt his knee fairly bad during basic training. He think it might be an ACL or MCL tear. It's been 2 weeks and he still hasn't gotten MRI results....or seen any improvement.

    He wants to take an ELS and come home.

    How will that effect the Army covering any surgery/rehab for his knee? Does he HAVE to stay to get coverage or will they work with him on that? Or is this just one of those things where there's no way to know what will happen?

    I don't know about coverage, but if it were me, I'd want to stay until the med issue were treated, healed, and rehabbed. He gets paid while injured, working or not.

    I wish I had known this yesterday before I talked to him.

    Hopefully his homesickness doesn't trump his common sense while making these decisions.

    I'm pretty sure he just has to wait. Unless the injury happens while he's on leave or something its protocol.
