Pitfalls To Avoid
1. Please be careful when ANY office advertises an all-inclusive flat fee including all tests and all vaccinations.
a) Do your homework. The prices at CVS or Walgreens for a Tdap vaccine are $66+ and MMR vaccine are $99. Once you call these chains or national labs for prices, you will realize that no individual practice can actually get real vaccines cheaper than these nationwide chains or perform blood tests at these costs without there being something questionable being done.
b) Think, how can people from all over the world fit into a “one size fits all” for a standard vaccination immigration recommendation for USCIS i-693 purposes? Every country vaccinates its population differently. So, when it comes to a flat fee-all inclusive green card physical deal, you really don’t know what is going on. Make sure you know what you are getting injected into your body, whether it is a PPD or a vaccine. Statcare does not offer any such all-inclusive price.
2. Use original verifiable documents only. Many Immigrants would rather submit “certifications” from their home country by a doctor as evidence to the USCIS. You worked hard and spent thousands of dollars just in lawyer fees to get to this point. Make sure to only use supporting documents that are true and are verifiable (such as government records of vaccinations).
3. Avoid going to offices that don’t do several Green Card Physicals a week. The USCIS requirements have changed several times in the last two years and a new form is coming soon again. The I-693 Form used to be 3 pages. Even 5 pages not too long ago. Now the I-693 is 13 pages long. The process is far more complicated and the paperwork needs to be done carefully. Only an office that does enough forms will not make errors. How do we know? Because we see their customers when their paperwork is returned. By the way, our prices have not changed because we do this as a service more than anything. Immigration Medical Exams is not all we do. Visit our services page to read more about all that we do.
4. Be careful when the doctors office says, ” Yes, we accept insurance” for the Immigration visit. Please call up your health plan first and ask if your Immigration Physical is something that is a covered benefit.
Remember, any violation of the law, whenever it is discovered will result in your US Citizenship being revoked. We had a patient whose green card was revoked after 23 years. Please don’t be penny wise and pound foolish.
5. Thinking that the Green Card Physical is a one-day affair. The least number of visits it usually takes is two visits. Also, when you rush the medical staff of any immigration doctor, there is a higher chance that errors will happen in the paperwork. Check out the USCIS I-693 Form for yourself.
6. Believing you don’t have a choice and that you can only go to the Immigration doctors listed on the paper sent by USCIS or the Immigration doctor recommended by your attorney. Actually, those are just guidelines to help you find an Immigration doctor. You can go to any of the 50 states in the country and get it done. We do immigration physicals for patients from CT, RI, PA, MA, OH and Washington DC. Patients come to visit NY and their families and get this paperwork done at the same time with us. These physicals can cost upwards of $600 in some locations.
7. We get cases where the I-693 application needs to be re-done. When we call the previous civil surgeon, we find that they have kept no records. Or the document just says vaccine given and there is no lot # or any other detail of which vaccine was given (there are five types of tetanus shots is just one example). Or that the lab result is merely on a typed up letter with no specimen number etc. Those are highly unacceptable and we would never submit that as evidence for your green card paperwork.
Each Statcare location is a UCAOA Certified Urgent Care Facility and this is our 10th year in business. At Statcare, we use outside labs that are Nationally Certified. All results are reported electronically. We give you copies of all documents. We also maintain all your scanned records as per federal guidelines.

You may call USCIS before jeopardizing your US citizenship as healthcare fraud is a federal offense.

Immigration Medical Exam, USCIS Civil Surgeon FAQs
Trying to find information on the Green Card medical exam? You have come to the right place! Read these FAQs and consumer tips to get the USCIS Form I-693 filled out correctly.
For a USCIS-certified civil surgeon to complete the physical exam check-up form (Form I-693) and clear you for the purpose of obtaining a Green Card for US permanent residency, you will need the following:
- An immigration physical examination by a USCIS civil surgeon also called a Green Card medical examination*
- RPR test for syphilis needs to be done on site. The charge is $20 and is NOT included in the $129 fee.
- Quantiferon test results. The lab fee is approximately $95 and is NOT included in the $129 fee.
- Urine Gonorrhea Test specimen collection (the lab fee is approximately $85 and is NOT included in the $129 fee)
- Completion of all Green Card physical forms by the USCIS Certified Civil Surgeon*
- All your vaccination records from your home country. The USCIS mandates you meet all vaccination standards so that your protection from illnesses is at the same level as that of US-born individuals. If you need any vaccinations done, we keep all vaccines in stock and the vaccines are not included in the discounted fee.
* Items 1 and 5 are included in our discounted Green Card check-up global fee of $129. There are no further discounts.
Where you choose to start your US immigration process can make a big difference! Getting it done right is key to your future in the US.
You may not bill your health insurance for immigration-related expenses. Neither can the civil surgeon. Feel free to call your health insurance plan. You do not want to start your immigration paperwork entangled in healthcare fraud – a federal crime!
When shopping for a Green Card medical examination price, always ask questions so that you know what your actual costs might be.
USCIS does not regulate what can be charged by a facility for a Green Card medical exam, but you can shop around and get the immigration physical done at the best price possible.
However, often there may be hidden costs that may not be as obvious to you. These include charges for:
- The I-693 Form (per page charge) printing charge (included at Statcare)
- Copies of the I-693 form (included at Statcare)
- Quantiferon test.
- Vaccine administration and supply charges (needle, syringe etc.)
- Chest X-ray charges for getting a chest X-ray done, charges for printing a copy
- Charges for reading the chest X-ray. Often, your X-ray may not even have a report made by a radiologist. At Statcare, you will always get an official report from a radiologist.
- Charges for prescriptions for TB medicines, were you to need one
- Charges for giving you a note summarizing that you got the vaccines
- Physician visit charges if your Quantiferon shows a positive result
- Lab charges for syphilis (RPR) confirmatory tests that are run automatically. At Statcare, we don’t run any automatic tests without your consent. However, the labs are mandated by New York State to run a confirmatory test for syphilis if your RPR is positive for syphilis and that test has to be paid for separately by you (only if your syphilis test is positive).
- Blood draw charges for doing the blood test required for the Green Card check-up
- Charges for any photocopies you may need while you’re there
- Charges for a third physician visit, if you were to need one
- Charges for expediting the USCIS I-693
Statcare USCIS-certified civil surgeon will complete your immigration medical examination form. We have four USCIS civil surgeons on staff and can finish your paperwork any day of the week including Saturday, Sunday, and holidays.
Our price for an immigration physical examination is only $129.
Vaccines are not included at any civil surgeon office. Anyone that is selling you an all-inclusive package is not being honest with you because people from different countries and different age groups have varying requirements. There just cannot be a “one size fits all.”
Don’t be surprised when your paperwork gets rejected. We see these cases all the time! Vaccines in the US are expensive and no medical office can put it out of their pocket for you. Cutting corners on US Green Card immigration paperwork is not a risk that you should be taking.
We get cases where the previous civil surgeon has kept no records. At Statcare, we maintain all scanned records as per federal guidelines. We stand behind our product. That is credibility, honesty, integrity, and dependability you can count on!
Remember, you do need to physically be here in our office for us to perform the USCIS immigration medical exam and complete your paperwork. We have five locations in Hicksville, Long Island; Astoria, Queens; Brooklyn, NYC; the Bronx at Bartow Avenue (Co-op City); the Bronx at E. 174th Street; Jackson Heights, the Queen; Midtown Manhattan in Manhattan and Jamaica, Queens.People come to us from all over New York (NY State), including New York City (NYC) and Manhattan, as well as from New Jersey (NJ) and Connecticut (CT).
Please read this carefully so you can get organized before your visit.
What you need to do for the first visit:
- Bring your passport, driver’s license, or a government-issued photo ID.
- Search and bring all your vaccine records and blood test results for vaccination-related antibodies when you come in. It may save you money.
- From October through March, if you got a flu vaccine, please bring the proof with you. Otherwise, we can give you the flu vaccine at our office at the same price that you get it anywhere else.
This is all the homework you need to do for the first immigration medical visit.
What we do at the first visit:
We will provide the latest copy of the USCIS I-693 form for the US immigration medical examination. And we don’t charge you for it. This avoids mistaken use of older versions of the I-693 Form. We understand most of you are still struggling to get a Green Card.
If you want to see what the I-693 form looks like, click here to see the I-693 form. You can bring the Form I-693 (Medical Examination of Aliens Seeking Adjustment of Status) if you want to. But please do not fill out the form yourself. US immigration officials are very particular and any mistakes or ‘white-outs’ will impact the integrity of your application for a Green Card.
On your first visit you will receive a medical check-up. Also, blood will be drawn and sent to a lab for the TB test (Quantiferon) and the syphilis test. A urine sample will be collected for the Gonorrhea test.
If you have received all the vaccines but do not have proof of the vaccination, you can opt for the blood test to check if you have protective antibodies from a prior vaccination in your blood. This blood test is not included in the global fee.
If you need certain vaccines, we will give them to you on the first day of your visit. You will have to pay for these vaccines separately:
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella)
- TDaP (Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis)
- Varicella (Chicken Pox)
- Influenza (Flu Vaccine)
Our prices for vaccines for a Green Card medical exam are extremely competitive but they change depending on the manufacturers who vary their price every couple of months. You will be informed about the most current price at all times. There are no surprises when you come to our office.
What you need to do for the second visit:
Just show up for the appointment. Bring in any documents that the provider may have asked for.
What we do at the second visit:
When you come back on your second visit, we will have the results of the Quantiferon and of the RPR blood test for syphilis. If the Quantiferon test is positive, then you will need a chest X-ray.
We do digital chest X-rays in our office using the latest technology and have it read by a radiologist. If the chest X-ray is abnormal, you will need further things done before you can be medically cleared for immigration (Green Card).
All Chest X-ray reports will be issued in 2 business days. We can even mail them to you if you so desire. Once you have provided us with all your documentation, we will have the paperwork ready for you in 7 days. You can pay an expedite fee and pick it up in 3 days as well, provided you have otherwise met all of the requirements.
The HIV test is not required anymore. The USCIS released a new 9-page I-693 form in 2016. As of August 01, 2016, the USCIS requires a special Gonorrhea Test on all adults above age 15. As of Oct. 1, 2018, the USCIS is mandating the IGRA for tuberculosis testing instead of the PPD. The IGRA blood test for TB is expensive and we can get it done at the most reasonable cost compared to anywhere else in NYC, NY, NJ, or CT. Also, the USCIS is updating its forms once again as of October 1, 2018. So, just in the last several months, there have been a slew of changes in this process. USCIS hasn’t released the new I693 form yet, we are on the lookout for the new form. USCIS has advised civil surgeons to continue using the previous form.
