BSA health forms, now as easy as A, B, C

Posted By Lynn Hamilton, Thursday, March 06, 2014

Deciding which version of the BSA's Annual Health and Medical Record you need shouldn't raise your blood pressure.


And starting today, you're getting a streamlined version of the BSA health forms and an easier-to-use website to accompany them. The site is the result of several BSA teams (professionals and volunteers) joining forces to make this process a painless one for you and other Scouters.


The Annual Health and Medical Record (hereafter AHMR) comes in several flavors, and until now some Scouters and parents found it a little difficult to determine which version of the AHMR they or their Scout/Venturer needed.


Taking your Cub Scouts on a local tour or your Boy Scouts on a two-night camping trip? The forms you'll need are different from those required on a camping trip lasting more than 72 hours.


Visiting the Florida Sea Base, Northern Tier, Philmont or the Summit? Be sure to print off some additional information to give your doctor.


It's all spelled out for you on the new site. Figuring out which forms you need is a snap thanks to logos, clear language and so-big-you-can't-miss-'em buttons you'll click to download the proper form.


Speaking of, you'll know you're using the right form if it says "2014 Printing" in the lower right corner.


If you've already gotten your physical using the old form, though, don't fret. Read more of this post
