Soldiers’ MEB Counsel Office

The Soldiers’ Medical Evaluation Board (MEB) Counsel Office at Fort Hood is staffed with attorneys and paralegals specially trained in disability law, medical evaluation boards, and the Integrated Disability Evaluation System (IDES). The staff assists Soldiers undergoing the MEB process at Fort Hood and also reviews the findings of the Informal Physical Evaluation Board (IPEB) with Soldiers.

At no cost to the Soldier, these advocates represent the individual Soldiers during the MEB process, ensuring their rights are protected. The goals of the staff are to make sure that Soldiers receive fair assessments of their medical conditions and that Soldiers’ medical conditions are accurately documented during the MEB process. Upon receiving the results from the IPEB, Soldiers also can come to the office to meet with one of the attorneys to review their IPEB findings.

The staff members are not health–care providers. However, these legal advocates review MEB case files and medical records while assisting Soldiers to discuss potential and likely outcomes of boards. They also can help Soldiers prepare records review requests, rebuttals to the MEB findings, and other statements which may be needed for a Soldier’s case. They have the experience and knowledge to work with multiple commands, organizations, and individuals on and off Fort Hood to resolve Soldier issues that often arise while the Soldier is undergoing the MEB process.
