Can military claim their move expense regardless of the distance/employment requirements when making permanent change in military status medical discharge?

Yes, you can claim the moving expenses if you move "home" from your last duty post after being discharged because it is still considered a PCS move. 

A permanent change of station (PCS) includes a move from: 

  • Home to the area of the first post of duty. 
  • One permanent post of duty to another. 
  • The last post of duty to home or to a nearer point in the U.S. The Armed Forces member must move within one year of ending active duty or within the period allowed under the Joint Travel Regulations
