Sorry but PMI (private mortgage insurance) is for conventional loans with less than 20% down
MIP (mortgage insurance premimum) is for fha loans there is also an up fron 1.75 % than can but does not have to be rolled into the loan.
VA loans have no mortgage insurance at all but they do have a 2.25% funding fee for your first time use then 3% for every time after that
The amount of monthly PMI or MIP is a math calculation best done by your lender

I am not a mortgage expert... so I will give the very general answer. Private mortgage insurance is required on MOST (not all) loans where there is not at least 20% equity. FHA, VA and other government loans are insured, although it's not usually an out of pocket cost to the borrower.
