Overseas Screening

The purpose of an Overseas Suitability Screening (OSS) is to identify medical, dental, educational and potential duty limiting conditions or requirements of both service and family members. Completing a screening will ensure that both the family and service member are qualified for overseas, operational duty, and remote duty assignments. For the best medical care or education, sometimes an overseas tour is not in the service or family member's best interest.

Per BUMED Instruction, the OSS process is required to be completed within 30 days of receipt of orders. It is important that an OSS is thoroughly completed on each accompanying service and family member. For BUMED instructions regarding the overseas screening program, see BUMED 1300-2A and MILPERSMAN 1300-306.
A proper screening ensures a productive tour for the service member, family and the new command. Improper screenings cause significant hardship for the family member, service member, and the service member’s command. If an improperly screened individual arrives at the overseas location their requirements usually exceed the capabilities of the new duty station and undue work and family stress could result. These could include increased absences from duty, decreased quality of life, unplanned expenditures, and early return of dependents (ERD) or tour curtailment. When a case of improper screening is identified, an Overseas Screening Deficiency Report (OSDR) will be submitted to the transferring/losing command, gaining command, BUMED, and COMNAVPERSCOM or HQMC.

To expedite the screening process

Start the OSS process immediately upon receipt of orders.
Ensure eligible family members with special needs are enrolled in the Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP).
For further details and to address specific questions about any related OSS issues, please see your area screener. The screener will be able to go into greater detail and answer inquiries pertaining to your specific situation.

Per BUMEDINST 1300.2B, the Suitability Screening process is required to be completed within 30 days of receipt of Orders (Marine Corps) and 30 days of LOI for Navy service member and 60 days for their dependents. It is important that a Suitability Screening is completed on each service and family member that is selected to come overseas. For an overview of the Suitiability Screening process and assigned areas of responsibility, view the Navy/USMC Suitability Screening Flowsheet/Overview link.
 
​If an improperly screened individual arrives at the overseas location with special needs, the requirements of the individual might exceed the capabilities of the new duty station and undue work and family related stress could result. These could include, but are not limited to: increased absences from duty, decreased quality of life, unplanned expenditures of temporary additional duty (TAD/TDY) funds and quite possibly early return of dependants (ERD) or Tour Curtailment.
 
When a case of improper screening is identified, an Overseas Screening Deficiency Report (OSDR) will be submitted (as required by BUMEDINST 1300.2B) to the transferring/losing command, gaining command, BUMED, and COMNAVPERSCOM or HQMC (as required by MILPERSMAN 1300-306). See the relevant references or the Sample OSDR for more information.
