I was able to pay for an NBME exam with a visa debit card, so it definitely works.
Not sure about the other two.

Any debit card that has Visa or Mastercard logo on it can be used online as credit card, this rule holds true in any website, whether it's NBME or ECFMG or USMLE World, any website that accepts credit card can accept debit cards.

A week ago Bank of America declared that it will be charging consumers for using their debit cards. New federal regulations capping how much banks may charge merchants for charge card purchases have prompted the shift, which is anticipated to be taken up by other financial institutions also. In a recent AP-GFK poll, 66 percent of Americans surveyed said they would think about changing financial institutions in the light of such a shift. But switching banks comes with its own pitfalls. How to painlessly switch banks. When it comes to dealing with debit card fees there are ,lots of issues happening. In order to avoid all those problems you need to choose the best bank for you. In this way you will be able to determine which credit card is the best.
