Notice of Eligibility (NOE) Process
A Notice of Eligibility (NOE) is used to authorize medical and/or dental treatment for a reservist who incurs or aggravates an injury, illness or disease in the line of duty (active or inactive duty). NOEs are only issued to reservists NOT currently on active duty orders (i.e. Med Hold or ADHC). Medical and/or dental treatment authorized under a NOE is limited to treatment specific to the line of duty injury, illness or disease and is typically only issued for a specific time-period. Chapter 6 of the Reserve Policy Manual Reserve Policy Manual, COMDTINST M1001.28 (series), provides additional information regarding NOEs.
