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, COMDTINST M1001.28 (series), provides additional information regarding NOEs.
