RESERVIST MAGAZINE HEADQUARTERS UPDATE New All-Services Electronic Periodic Health Assessment (PHA) Process On March 1, the Coast Guard transitioned to the All-Services PHA System. The PHA is now a three-part assessment, which includes an online self-assessment, a medical record review by a health services technician (HS), and a face-to-face review with a certified PHA health care provider. As before, service members are required to complete a PHA every 12 months, but the birth month requirement has been eliminated, reducing scheduling conflicts. However, completing your PHA in your birth month is still a good rule of thumb if your unit doesn't conduct a group PHA event. PROCESS: Step 1. Enroll in the PHA System ( If you have previously enrolled, move to Step 2. • Select "Register New Account" and follow the instructions. Step 2. Complete the survey • Access the site (above) using your common access card (CAC) or your Department of Defense 10-digit ID number and the password you created during registration. • If you are logging in from a non-CAC enabled computer, you can use your DoD ID and password. You will also need to answer your security question you set up during registration. • Don't forget to have your five-digit Unit Identification Code (UIC) on hand (same as OPFAC). • Once completed, a customized education form is generated. You can save, print, or email this document for your personal use. Step 3. If you are due for a Post Deployment Heath Assessment complete your survey at: ( • If you have not previously enrolled, select "Register New Deployer Account" and follow the instructions. • If you do not remember your password, click the "Forgot Your Password" link and reset your password. Step 4. Check your Dental Status. We suggest you have a current dental exam in combination with the PHA to remain medically ready. (Check your dental status in CGBI.) If you are due for a dental exam or are Dental Class 4, contact your local dental provider and schedule an appointment. Step 5. Contact your regional HS and request a medical record review. A Reserve health readiness provider (RHRP) contractor will contact you to schedule an appointment. — Submitted by By Lt.
