Medical exam, my history, insurance - do I have to reveal anything?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am on F-1 visa, but after 2 years of waiting, finally it's going to happen!

I want the interview for the adjustment of status (aka "green card") to go as smooth as possible.

I would also feel much more comfortable, if I would keep my medical history private.

I am prescribed amphetamine salts for ADHD. I have never abused drugs, but I have a history of mental illness, like depression, anxiety, etc.

When I looked at the form I-639 and read some topics on this forum, it seems it is a very wise idea to not provoke the doctor to do the drug test.

Regardless, I will stop taking my medication for a few days before the medical exam, just in case.

Questions:

1. Will they be checking my insurance? (the insurance doesn't cover the exam, paid out of pocket)

2. Will they require any previous medical records?

I know some of you might disagree about hiding any medical history or keeping in a secret a medication someone's taking.

But, this is my private thing and I don't feel comfortable to reveal anywhere, but this forum, that I have suffered from any mental disorder, nor I take any medication.

Thanks for the help,

James

No big deal James, countless before you have been through AOS with history of mental ilness and had no problem. Please read through the forums here for personal stories. None of the medical conditions you mentioned are ground for denial for AOS.

To answer your questions, they won't check your insurance.

Only the information you reveal on the form ( there will be one) will be considered.

The factor USCIS and the examining doctor are strict about are receiving proper vaccination and there will be a blood test for VDs. About vaccines you need to be up front and truthful about what vaccines you have received and what is lacking, the examining doctor will take care of the vaccines that are missing, if any.

And there will be chest x-Ray etc for things like TB.

You're either eligible for AOS and your medical history is irrelevant or you're in which case not revealing it is a fraud and IMO pretty dumb move.

So if I'm eligible for I-485, no questions asked about medical history? Just immunization and vaccines?
