    Visit Statcare for Your USCIS Medical Exam

    The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requires a medical exam for anyone looking to get a green card. The aim of the USCIS medical exam is to ensure that someone who comes to live in the United States is healthy and has all the necessary vaccines to remain in good health as long as they live here. Like many required medical exams, there is some confusion about who can give you the exam, what to do after it and how to make sure you’re getting a test done by a certified professional.

    We understand all those worries, which is why we’ve made it easy to understand the USCIS medical exam process.

    What Is a USCIS Medical Exam For?

    The USCIS medical exam ensures that all immigrants are healthy and current with all mandated vaccines. A person cannot get a valid green card without completing a USCIS medical exam and the exam must be administered by a USCIS certified doctor. Make sure if you’re looking to get a USCIS medical exam you research first whether or not a doctor on staff is certified to administer them. Don’t waste your time (or money) on an exam that isn’t going to be valid to obtain a green card.

    Everything You Need for a USCIS Medical Exam in One Place.

    At Statcare, we offer USCIS medical exams for the low price of $129. We also do blood tests and urine tests that are required for the immigration physical at all of our five Statcare locations. Don’t make an extra trip to the lab, when you can get urine tests, x-rays and blood tests all done inside one building. Plus, we’re open every day of the year, including weekends and holidays for extended hours. Patients love us for the freedom, flexibility and cost-effective approach we take to USCIS medical exams.

    Anyone 15 and older will need an RPR test charged additionally at $20. This test has to be done at the civil surgeon’s office – so the charge for you will be $149 if you are 15 and older.

    What to Avoid When Taking a USCIS Medical Exam?

    We know that you may research a few options when looking for the place to take your USCIS medical exam, but not every facility has your best interest in mind. Here are a few red flags to look out for when you think you found a deal that might be too good to be true.

    1.  Any office that promotes an all-inclusive flat fee including all tests and all vaccinations. Vaccines are not one-size-fits-all, you need to get a specific dose administered by a professional.

    2.  If they require anything but original, verifiable documents only. Avoid any possible hold-ups by only using supporting documents that are true and are verifiable (such as government records of vaccinations).

    3.  Offices that don’t do several USCIS medical exams per week. The process is constantly changing and you need to work with a facility with trained staff that can get your results submitted accurately and completely.

    4.  Places that mention insurance covering the cost of USCIS medical exams. It isn’t normally covered and any small mix up can result in a denial of your green card and your citizenship can be revoked in the future. That’s a big mistake you don’t want to make.

    5.  Mentioning that the USCIS medical exam can be done in one day. It takes at least two visits as there are blood tests and urine tests that take up to 3-4 days), and any office that rushes it will likely make mistakes. Statcare helps you get started any time of the week as we are open all 7 days.

    6.  Any attorney office that mandates you only use the doctors they are sending you to. You have a choice to pick the location that best serves your needs and offers an affordable price. We have four USCIS approved doctors on staff.

    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.

    Yes. Statcare is certified by USCIS to perform immigration medical exams. Statcare has three Civil Surgeons on Staff. See proof of our USCIS certification.

    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:

    1. An immigration physical examination by a USCIS civil surgeon also called a Green Card medical examination*
    2. RPR test for syphilis needs to be done on site. The charge is $20 and this includes blood draw charge.
    3. Quantiferon test results. The lab fee is approximately $95 and is NOT included in the $129 fee.
    4. Urine Gonorrhea Test specimen collection (the lab fee is approximately $85 and is NOT included in the $129 fee)
    5. Completion of all Green Card physical forms by the USCIS Certified Civil Surgeon*
    6. 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:

    1. The I-693 Form (per page charge) printing charge (included at Statcare)
    2. Copies of the I-693 form (included at Statcare)
    3. Quantiferon test.
    4. Vaccine administration and supply charges (needle, syringe etc.)
    5. Chest X-ray charges for getting a chest X-ray done, charges for printing a copy
    6. 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.
    7. Charges for prescriptions for TB medicines were you to need one.
    8. Charges for giving you a note summarizing that you got the vaccines.
    9. Physician visit charges if your Quantiferon shows a positive result.
    10. Lab charges for syphilis (VDRL) 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).
    11. Blood draw charges for doing the blood test required for the Green Card check-up.
    12. Charges for any photocopies you may need while you’re there.
    13. Charges for a third physician visit, if you were to need one.
    14. Charges for expediting the USCIS I-693.

    Statcare USCIS-certified civil surgeon will complete your immigration medical examination form. We have three 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!

    We pride ourselves on being a completely transparent business. When you trust us with your US immigration paperwork, we take this responsibility seriously. Doing an immigration medical exam is only one of the things our office does. It is not all that we do. That is the biggest difference between us and others, as you might have noticed already.

    We provide immigration medical exams as a service to immigrants because like you, we were immigrants too! We understand your challenges because we went through similar challenges ourselves. Doing immigration physicals is not our core business. Do check out all the services we provide!

    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); and the Bronx at E. 174th Street. 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).

    A word of caution for those who rely on vaccination documents obtained from their home country: Any lies or falsification on your application will automatically disqualify you from US citizenship, regardless of how many years have passed since your citizenship status. The USCIS vaccination requirements are for your protection. Do not try to bypass them in any way. You will be discovered or the person who knows your weakness will exploit you.

    When we give you the vaccines, we will record the lot number and show you the expiration dates on the vaccines.

    We only do what is right. For this reason, we do not take over immigration medical exams where someone else has left off. We cannot certify the work if it is not done by us.

    If you are shopping for a bargain price or a fixed price for “everything,” please do not call our staff. They cannot help you with this because that situation assumes everyone gets the same medical care at all ages in all countries, which is clearly not a possible scenario. You have to see the civil surgeon, as the staff members answering your phone calls are not medical doctors and cannot give you medical advice.

    We are certified by the USCIS for immigration and naturalization medical exams. We do more immigration medical exams than anyone in the tri-state area!

    We are open 7 days a week, including holidays. We are open until 8 PM on weekdays. Our Brooklyn office is open till 9 PM on weekdays. No appointments are required. Just walk in!

    We accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express cards. No personal checks.

    An immigration medical exam involves a few steps. The Green Card medical exam to any USCIS certified civil surgeon involves two visits as the lab takes a few days to report the results.

    Please read this carefully so you can get organized before your visit.

    What you need to do for the first visit:

    1. Bring your passport, driver’s license, or a government-issued photo ID.
    2. Search and bring all your vaccine records and blood test results for vaccination-related antibodies when you come in. It may save you money.
    3. 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. 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:

    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.

    Statcare has four USCIS-certified civil surgeons on staff. The Green Card medical exam is done all 7 days a week including weekends, and the whole family can come and get it done at the same time or separately. We are also open in the evening, all 7 days a week.

    All blood tests are drawn at our facility. If you need a chest X-ray, it will also get done at our facility. We are a one-stop shop for all your immigration medical needs!

    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.
