If you are applying for a green card in the United States, you will be required to undergo a medical assessment as part of the immigration process. This assessment helps ensure that you are not inadmissible to the country based on health-related grounds, and that you do not pose a public health threat. In this blog post, we will walk you through what to expect during a medical assessment for a green card application in NYC.
Choosing a Designated Civil Surgeon
As a green card applicant, you must undergo a medical assessment conducted by a USCIS-designated civil surgeon. At Nao Medical, we have a team of designated civil surgeons who are authorized to conduct the medical examination and complete the required paperwork.
What to Bring to the Appointment
When you schedule your medical assessment appointment with Nao Medical, you will be provided with a list of required documentation to bring with you to the appointment. This will typically include your passport or other government-issued ID, immunization records, and any medical records related to your current health status or previous health conditions. It is important to bring all required documents to avoid delays in processing your green card application.
What the Medical Assessment Entails
The medical assessment for a green card application consists of two parts: a medical history review and a physical examination.
Medical History Review
During the medical history review, the civil surgeon will ask you questions about your medical history, including any previous or current medical conditions, surgeries, hospitalizations, and medications. The civil surgeon will also ask about your vaccination history and determine whether you have received all required vaccinations for your age and health status.
The physical examination includes a standard set of tests to evaluate your overall health. These tests may include a blood test, a urine test, a chest X-ray, and a tuberculosis (TB) skin test. The civil surgeon will also check your vital signs, such as your blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature, and examine your eyes, ears, nose, and throat.
Getting Your Results
After the medical assessment, the civil surgeon will complete the required USCIS forms and provide you with a sealed envelope containing the results of your medical assessment. You will need to submit this envelope to USCIS along with your green card application.
