Abstract Objective: This study aimed to determine whether preventive health assessment currency and medical nondeployability rates were the same for all active duty members in the U.S. Air Force. Methods: Deidentified data were compiled from personnel and readiness databases. Prevalence of current preventive appointments and nondeployable status were calculated by race/ethnicity, gender, and rank, and adjusted for age. Results: Permanent medical nondeployability was higher for Asian/Pacific Islanders and non- Hispanic Blacks than non-Hispanic Whites.
