SECTION 3: DEFINITIONS

Appropriately Credentialed Health Care Provider (ACHCP). An individual who has specialized training or education in a health-related field. This may include administration, direct provision of patient care, or ancillary services. Such a professional is licensed, certified, or registered by a Government agency to provide specific health services in the field as an independent. An ACHCP, referred to throughout MCO P6100.12 as Medical Officer (MO), is a physician, physician's assistant, or nurse practitioner; Independent Corpsmen or regular Corpsmen are not considered ACHCPs.

Body Composition Program (BCP). Formerly known as the "Weight Control Program." Marines assigned to the BCP will receive assistance in reducing weight/body fat, in order to resume to a more healthy physical fitness state. The BCP assignment process and endorsements are contained in appendix D; the unit's administrative actions are contained in paragraph 3201 of MCO P6100.12.

Body Fat (BF). The amount of fat tissue a person has in ratio to lean body mass (or muscles, bones, organs, nervous tissue, and skin).

Diary Feedback Report (DFR). A report received in the Admin Section requiring action (e.g., DFR to notify the command that SNM's BCP assignment period has expired).

Light Duty. This is the status a MO assigns to a Marine when it is determined that a medical condition exists that interferes with the performance of duty, but the Marine is expected to return to full duty (RTFD). A MO may recommend up to 3 0 days light duty. When the light duty period expires, SNM will be medically reevaluated. If SNM is not RTFD status, then the Marine will be placed on medical hold and a Medical Evaluation Board (MEB) must be initiated and completed within the following 3 0 days.

Limited Duty. This is the status a MO assigns to a Marine when it is determined that a medical condition exists and will require an extended period of time before being RTFD. See Temporary Limited Duty and Permanent Limited Duty.

MEB. A MEB is a group of MOs at a local Military Treatment Facility (MTF) convened for the purpose of identifying the physical and mental qualifications of referred Marines to RTFD. The MEB is charged with determining whether a Marine's limitation(s) preclude their RTFD within a reasonable period of time or at all. A MEB will evaluate and report on the diagnosis, prognosis, possible RTFD, plan for further treatment, and make medical recommendation(s) for disposition.

MO. An ACHCP; see ACHCP.

Partial Physical Fitness Test (PPFT). Marines who are medically excused from performing a particular event of the PFT, as certified by a MO, are required to perform a PPFT. Marines will be required to obtain at least the minimum passing performance for the two events they are medically qualified, in order to pass the PPFT.

Permanent Limited Duty (PLD). PLD is a continuation on active duty in a permanent limited duty status, which is approved after a Marine has been determined "Unfit" by a PEB as a result of physical disability. PLD is assigned when a Marine is not expected to RTFD earlier than 16 months or it is projected that the condition cannot be corrected. A Marine can remain on active duty with a PLD status, provided criteria is met per MCO P1900.16F. PLD is requested through the PEB and approved by CMC (MMSR-4). PLD requests will be authorized by the PEB based on the best interest of the Marine Corps and the health of the Marine.

Physical Evaluation Board (PEB). The PEB acts on behalf of the SecNav to make determinations of fitness for continued military service, entitlement to benefits, disability ratings, and disposition of the medical case. A PEB is required to convene for cases that exceed the maximum 16 months of limited duty or when a Marine's initial diagnosis and prognosis do not anticipate a return to RFTD.

Physical Fitness Test (PFT). An instrument that measures the level of physical fitness of all Marines. It is a measurement of general fitness vice combat readiness and MOS capability. The standard PFT consists of three events that measure cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength and endurance, and mobility. Male Marines will perform dead-hang pullups, abdominal crunches, and a 3.0 mile run. Female Marines will complete the flexed arm hang, abdominal crunches, and a 3.0 mile run. These events are designed to test the strength and stamina of the upper body (shoulder girth), midsection, and lower body, as well as the efficiency of the cardiovascular system.

Physical Readiness Training (PRT). This training is comprised of general physical conditioning exercises that will develop and maintain strength, endurance, and the physical skills necessary to sustain individual Marines during combat.

Remedial Physical Conditioning Program (RPCP). Remedial physical conditioning is a process by which Marines are conditioned in a progressive manner to meet prescribed standards. The Program affords Marines the opportunity to rebuild themselves after a weight/body fat increase, injury/illness, pregnancy, or a period that lacked a structured fitness program.

Residential Obesity Program (ROP). Marines that have been evaluated by a MO and determined to have an extreme weight/body fat increase due to an underlying cause or associated disease, will be recommended to participate in the ROP.

Temporary Limited Duty (TLD). TLD is an assignment of limited duty for a specific period. Assignment to TLD can only be made after the completion of a MEB, and only if the prognosis is that the Marine can be RTFD within the specified period. The cumulative period of TLD will not exceed 16 months.
