What Is the Foreign Medical Program?
The Foreign Medical Program is a VA health care benefits program for U.S. veterans who:
- reside or travel abroad (with the exception of health care services received in the Phillippines); and,
- have VA-rated, service-connected disabilities.
The VA may authorize foreign medical services for veterans only for a VA-rated, service-connected disability or for a condition that is associated with and aggravated by a VA-rated, service-connected disability.
