A NEW Periodic Health Examination
(PHE) will be introduced in July to
replace the Annual Health Assessment
(AHA) and the Comprehensive
Preventative Health Examination
Joint Health Command's Directorate
of Military Medicine announced the new
system to reduce the number of medical
examinations in the ADF.
The system will be linked with
a member's MEC for more responsive
reporting of medical individual readiness
The PHE will be done every five years
for Navy and Air Force personnel under
40 and every three years for Army mem-
bers under 40 due to higher rates of inju-
ries in the Army.
Between the age of 40 and 50 mem-
bers will have the examination every two
years and annually for everyone over 50
years of age.
The new timeframes reflect a risk
management approach to health assess-
ments and the likelihood of increased
illness and disease with age and is aligned
to best civilian medical practice.
A transition program is being devel-
oped for health staff in the conduct of the
PHE and the workings of the new MEC
As part of this process, routine AHAs
will be phased out and cease on March 4.
Reserve members who need an AHA
for a financial benefit can continue to
have one until June 30.
