What Is a USCIS Medical Exam For?
The USCIS medical exam verifies that all immigrants are in good health and have received all vaccinations required. They will not be able to get a legitimate green card unless they undergo an adjustment of status to be a permanent resident (Form i-485) and a green card interview. This requires a complete form i-693, USCIS medical examinations. The
A USCIS certified civil surgeon must perform the i-693 medical examination on the applicant. When the immigration exam is done as part of visa processing at an overseas embassy or consulate (outside of the United States), they are referred to as Panel Physicians. And when they are located within the United States, they are referred to as Civil Surgeons. You can get more information about this at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.

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.
- Any establishment that advertises a whole flat charge for all testing (RPR, immigration gonorrhea test, USCIS TB test) and all adjustments of status vaccines.
- If the medical examiner requires original documents only.
- Immigration medical offices that do not do several USCIS medical examinations every week. The I-693 immigration form requirement is continuously changing, so you’ll want to deal with a facility that has a qualified staff that can correctly and thoroughly fill out the form.
- Insurance coverage for USCIS medical exams is mentioned in a few places. Medical expenditures incurred as a result of your immigration status are usually not covered, and you may inquire about this with your health insurance provider.
- The USCIS medical exam may be completed in one or two days. It requires at least two visits since blood and urine tests can take up to 3-4 days. Any practice that completes the paperwork faster may not be employing a reputable lab or performing a bedside test.
