Are you a Veteran living or traveling abroad with a VA-rated service-connected disability? You may be eligible for medical services through VA’s Foreign Medical Program (FMP) for treatment associated with your service-connected disability.

To enroll in FMP, you will need to fill out the FMP Registration Form (VA Form 10-7959f-1 and send to VA. Fillable PDFs can be completed online, mailed to the address below, or faxed to 1-303-331-7803.

Eligible Veterans who are traveling abroad and do not have a permanent foreign mailing address should apply for the FMP before they travel using their U.S. address.
Filing a Claim
In order to speed up your claim processing, have your provider submit the claim directly to VA. If your provider doesn’t send the claim directly to VA, you will need to pay the provider and then submit a claim to VA for reimbursement.
Keep in mind that claim information submitted in a language other than English can be translated but will cause a delay.
When filing the claim, include the Veteran’s full name, Social Security Number, VA file number, mailing address and a VA Form 10-7959f-2, FMP Claim Cover sheet. Additional documentation may be needed depending on the type of claim.
For more information, visit How to File a FMP Claim fact sheet.
