medical inadmissibility?

Hey all:)

I've spent the past few months reading up on all kinds of K1 things and we've finally stopped procrastinating and got everything together to send the package in.

He's been sick for the past month or so, and we just got the results back this morning. He was just diagnosed with Leukemia :wacko::crying: I'm going to be flying over there to go through all the treatments with him for as long as I can...which will be hard considering I have 2 small children. I'm hoping to get him over here for treatment ASAP but that raises issues about medical insurance:/ Anyways I guess I'm rambling:S

My question is.. he seems to think that even if he is in remission that this will be enough to keep the US from allowing him residency. I tried to research this and didnt see anything regarding cancer. I was just wondering if anyone has any idea if they would really deny his medical for cancer. From what I read, it just seemed to be communicable diseases. Any info anyone has would be appreciated.

As far as I know (we just went through the medical process... again) you're right, it's just communicable diseases, I don't think they even test for other things, so the leukemia might not even show up for them. In any case, even if it did it's probably fine. They're more worried about what you can bring in to give to other people than an isolated condition.

However, medical insurance is another thing altogether. If he has to have a medical before his insurance and he's denied coverage you would have some massive medical bills ahead for you. Just something to think about.

I'm so sorry your SO is sick, but I'm sure he'll make it through just fine with you by his side. :)

Good Luck!
