Navy Ends Mandatory 6-Month Limited-Duty Period for Ill, Injured Sailors

The U.S. Navy is eliminating its automatic 180-day limited-duty period for injured or ill sailors and Marines and moving to a flexible time frame based on a service member's medical diagnosis and projected recovery time.

The service also will introduce a position at Navy Medical Training Command and major units dedicated to monitoring and facilitating the process -- physicians fully versed in medical evaluation policies, diagnoses and treatments who can advise leaders on the status of personnel on limited duty and weigh in on return-to-duty decisions.
