  • Denied Med Waiver

    I was recently denied a BuMED waiver for osteomalacia occurring around a screw in my right tiba from an ACL surgery three years ago. After consulting my personal doctor, ex navy, he said that I was misdiagnosed and that there was no bone softening around the screw. I am currently trying to join the Army Reserves or Guard, undecided as of now, and I was wondering what my chances of getting a waiver are? And also, what would you recommend for supporting documents to send in with my waiver request? Thanks!

    Additional information. I have full range of motion and have not been limited with any activities. I have competed competitively in college sports for the past two years. Currently have a 3.8 gpa, and scored a 94 on the ASVAB. I dont know if those factors are considered when applying for a waiver

      I have heard that BUMED waivers are hard to get. I don't have any specific knowledge of your issue but from my own experience, I would gather us much medical documentation that you can that says you don't have osteomalacia. I would suggest you see a couple of specialists that can verify this.
      Your gpa, college, and ASAB scores do not factor into a medical waiver.

        Thank you very much for your quick response. I am seeing my own doctor again soon and then reaching out to a specialist also. Im hoping that their documentation will help get a waiver passed as joining the armed forces has been a life long dream
