Fellow Veterans - Foreign Medical Program
 
Any fellow disabled veterans have any experience with the Foreign Medical Program (FMP) while cruising?



I'm 100% service connected and collect social security disability (I'm not using medicare and don't think it's available while in another country).



I read that service connected disabilities are covered through FMP but I'm curious if anyone has experience with using the program.
