|Publication Date:||14 January 2015|
The mission of the Air Force Medical Service (AFMS) is to ensure medically fit forces, provide expeditionary medics, and improve the health of all we serve to meet our nation's needs. To carry out this important mission, the AFMS must recruit and retain highly qualified medical assets. Medical Special and Incentive (S&I) pay is one of the many tools designed to attract and retain highly skilled health professions officers. S&I pay is authorized by 37 U.S.C. Chapter 5; Department of Defense Instruction (DoDI) 6000.13, Medical Manpower and Personnel; and Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs (ASD(HA)) policy memorandums. Statutory requirements for special pays are regulated by the Secretary of Defense and delegated to ASD(HA) for implementation. The S&I budget is subject to re-authorization each fiscal year.
