Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection. Abstracts: This information collection is needed to carry out the health care benefits allowed by the Foreign Medical Program (FMP). It is a federal health benefits program for Veterans administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Veterans Health Administration (VHA). FMP is a Fee for Service (indemnity plan) program. FMP provides reimbursement for VA adjudicated service-connected conditions. Title 38 CFR 17.35 states VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:55 Dec 10, 2015 Jkt 238001 that the VA will provide coverage for the Veteran’s service-connected disability when the Veteran is residing or traveling overseas. VA Form 10–7959f–1, Foreign Medical Program (FMP) Registration Form, is used to register into the Foreign Medical Program those Veterans with service-connected disabilities that are living or traveling overseas. Title 38 CFR 17.125(d) states that requests for consideration of claim reimbursement from approved health care providers and Veterans are to be mailed to VHA Health Administration Center (HAC). The VA Form 10–7959f–2, Claim Cover Sheet—Foreign Medical Program streamlines the claims submission process for claimants or physicians while also reducing the time spent by VA on processing FMP claims.
