Respite Care Reimbursement Program

The Respite Care Reimbursement Program is intended to reduce stress on sponsor families by providing temporary rest periods for the primary caregiver(s) who care for those Exceptional Family Members with severe and profound special needs (Level of Need 3 and 4). Reimbursement for respite care is a non-entitlement benefit to be considered as a subsidy for care up to 20 hours per month. Sponsors must submit provider documentation to the Henderson Hall EFMP Program Manager for approval. Please contact us at or 703-693-7195 for more information about the program and to see if you are eligible.

Please review Marine Corps Bulletin 1754 (MCBUL 1754). This Bulletin outlines policy regarding an Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) enrolled Marine’s eligibility to utilize respite care, establishes respite care reimbursement formulas and clarifies authorized use of respite care.
