Process Foreign Medical Claim
How do I get a Foreign Medical Claim processed?
Please contact the nearest US Embassy and ask them for a list of Doctors who are available to conduct physical examinations needed by VA.
- If the examination is in a foreign language, VA will get it translated when it is received.
Once you are found to have a service-connected disability, there is a program called Foreign Medical Program (FMP) designed for US Veterans residing outside the US. Under FMP, VA assumes payment responsibility for certain services that are associated with service-connected conditions.
For more information (including contact information) about the Foreign Medical Program, please visit our Foreign Medical Program (FMP) website.
