Sleep study while on orders

Rate this question



I am currently a drilling reservist. I want to get a sleep study. My flight doc said I can get that done at a civilian facility and he will put the results in my military medical record. Is that correct?  I’ve heard a few people say you have to be on active duty orders for a period of 30 days or more in order to get anything new put in your military medical records. Does anyone know the definitive answer on this? I just want to know if I have to request to be put on orders for this and if so do these orders need to be 30 days or more or if I can just do a couple weeks.

If you want a sleep study done, I suggest you keep a copy of your own.  (the original).  If they wont add it to your records, you can add it later.   

You have to meet the minimum requirements for VA benefits, if that is what you are seeking.  https://www.benefits.va.gov/GUARDRESERVE/active-reserve.asp

National Guard and Reserve members with active service may qualify for a variety of VA benefits. Active service includes:

Active duty (Title 10) - full-time duty, such as, but not limited to, a unit deployment during war, including travel to and from such duty, OR

  • Full-time National Guard duty (Title 32) - full-time duty, such as responding to a national emergency or duties as an Active Guard Reserve, where you receive pay from the Federal government

The bottom line you have to have 90 days active service to qualify for benefits.
