It really depends on where you are and where you get your VA medical care. There is a Foreign Medical Program run by the VA which should reimburse you for overseas medical treatment for SERVICE-CONNECTED conditions. It is important to note that regardless of your rating--0-100%, the FMP will only pay for treatment for service-connected conditions. It isn't like going to the local VAMC and getting treated for anything that ails you. Also, FMP will pay the overseas provider if the provider agrees to direct payment. I haven't ever heard of that happening, but I suppose it does. C&P exams are different and various areas of the world are handled by different ROs in the US.

Provide some more information, and maybe you'll get a better answer. In the meantime, Google: "Foreign Medical Program"

Sameo to us -They (VA) have 38 CFR ,38 USC, and M21-1- but so do we.

My experience with Foreign Medical payment is worse than the other VA. In fact they are experts at denial and merry go round specialists.

Veterans deserve real choice for their health care.
