> VA - Health Care - Foreign Medical Program
The Foreign Medical Program (FMP) is a Department of Veterans (VA) health care benefits program for U.S. veterans with VA rated service-connected conditions that are residing or traveling abroad. Under FMP, VA assumes payment responsibility for certain necessary health care services associated with the treatment of those service-connected conditions.
General Program Requirements:
The Foreign Medical Program (FMP) is not part of the Medical Benefits Package. You don??t have to be enrolled in the VA health care system to participate.
VA may authorize foreign medical services for veterans only for a VA rated service-connected condition or for a condition that is associated with and aggravated by a VA rated service-connected condition.
This means that disability percentages have no bearing on determining eligibility for FMP medical services.
Additionally, VA may authorize necessary foreign medical services for any condition for a veteran participating in the VA Vocational Rehabilitation Program.
