The Army Recovery Care Program (ARCP) transitions soldiers back to the force and/or to Veteran status, through a comprehensive program of medical case management/rehabilitation management, professional development and achievement of personal goals.

ARCP provides policy oversight to the 14 Soldier Recovery Units (SRU) located on military installations across the country. SRUs manage the recovery of wounded, ill and injured soldiers requiring complex care. The program also provides resources and advocacy for families and caregivers of soldiers recovering in the program. More than 80,000 soldiers have received ARCP services since its inception in 2007.


Army National Guard Soldiers who are on drill status are not eligible for ARCP. The soldier must have sustained wounds, illness, or injuries while on active duty.

Reserve Component Soldiers (COMPO 2 and 3) not in Active Guard Reserve status who do not meet eligibility criteria will be managed remotely using the Reserve Component Managed Care (RCMC) program (COMPO 2) and the Remote Medical Management (RM2) (COMPO 2 and 3).

Remote Management Criteria


  • RCMC is a program that remotely manages National Guard Reserve Soldiers who meet eligibility criteria. OR


  • RM2 is a program that provides medical case management for non-complex United States Army Reserve Soldiers who are authorized evaluation and/or treatment while on active duty orders, but who do not meet ARCP entry criteria.
