Q:  My provider referred me to the MEB, when should I expect to be contacted?
A:  The MEB starts upon approval of your profile. Profiles should be dispositioned (approved or returned) within 2 weeks of submission. If you have not been contacted within that time, you will need to follow-up with your referring provider.
Q:  How long does the IDES process take?
A:  The IDES timeline goal is 180 calendar days from the date of profile approval to the date of separation. This does not include any amount of administrative absences or accrued leave that is authorized during the Transition Phase.
