    Medical waivers (For service member)

    Advertisements
    I was able to find a lot of material on medical clearances for spouses, but nothing for the service member. DH was putting together his packet to apply for a new position and his medical waiver was denied. He previously had an orthopedic surgery that apparently makes him unfit for the specific position he is applying for. Does anybody have any experience with this? Is there any way for him to push through it or is he SOL?

    I know for pilot, there is a list of what is waiverable. If something isn't waiverable, it is an absolute no. If it is, that doesn't necessarily mean anyone actually gets it, but it is worth pushing back a bit. So the waiver guidelines are the best place to start figuring out if there is any chance at all.

    Honestly, from my knowledge, if you were denied something and had to put a waiver in for it, and then the waiver is denied, that's a definite no. He may be able to appeal the waiver decision, you'd have to look into it. But a waiver is a last resort. He might very well not get anywhere from here. Hopefully they will at least reevaluate his case!
