Army Recovery Care Program

Friday, June 12, 2020

What is it?

The Army Recovery Care Program serves as the U.S. Army proponent to oversee, integrate, and synchronize policy, advocacy, and execution for warrior care initiatives. This program directly supports the Army Medical Command efforts.

What are the current and past efforts of the Army?

Restructure of the Army Recovery Care Program began in November 2019 to focus on its central mission of complex-case-management for wounded, ill, and injured Soldiers.

  • A total force solution that reinforces Soldier Recovery Units (SRU) resources are available to all Soldiers with complex-case-management needs, regardless of component.
  • A revised “single entry criteria” ensures this standard is met, with implementation scheduled for July 1, 2020.
  • Non-complex Army Reserve Soldiers will be managed by SRUs in a separate Remote Medical Management (RM2) program.
  • Non-complex Army National Guard Soldiers will be managed by their component in the Reserve Component Managed Care (RCMC) program.

What continued efforts does the Army have planned?

The organizational restructure and reform measures remain on schedule to reach full operational capability by October 2020. The program will continue to assess impacts, incorporate best practices, and build an agile program ready to support Soldier recovery and Army readiness.

Why is this important to the Army?

The Army Recovery Care Program reform is an integral enabler of Army Readiness. This program ensures safeguarding the humanity, dignity, and respect of wounded, ill, and injured Soldiers by focusing resources on the unique needs of each individual Soldier.
