medical failed?

What type of things will cause the medical to fail? Are they just looking for things like aids/stds or is it beyond that?

Aids, no but STD's and other communicable diseases of significance, such as TB, yes. Aids was removed from the list about a year and a half ago. Admitting the use of illegal drugs is a big problem and certain mental illness is also of concern. Actual drug test failure is big deal too.

This list is not current. HIV is no longer on the list. See later post for reference.

HIV = Aids. It was removed from the list.

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND

HUMAN SERVICES

Centers for Disease Control and

Prevention

42 CFR Part 34

[Docket No. CDC–2009–0003]

RIN 0920–AA26

Medical Examination of Aliens—

Removal of Human Immunodeficiency

Virus (HIV) Infection From Definition of

Communicable Disease of Public

Health Significance

AGENCY: Centers for Disease Control and

Prevention (CDC), U.S. Department of

Health and Human Services (HHS)

ACTION: Final rule.

SUMMARY: Through this final rule, the

Centers for Disease Control and

Prevention (CDC), within the U.S.

Department of Health and Human

Services (HHS), is amending its

regulations to remove ‘‘Human

Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)

infection’’ from the definition of

communicable disease of public health

significance and remove references to

‘‘HIV’’ from the scope of examinations

for aliens.

Prior to this final rule, aliens with

HIV infection were considered to have

a communicable disease of public

health significance and were thus

inadmissible to the United States per

the Immigration and Nationality Act

(INA). While HIV infection is a serious

health condition, it is not a

communicable disease that is a

significant public health risk for

introduction, transmission, and spread

to the U.S. population through casual

contact. As a result of this final rule,

aliens will no longer be inadmissible

into the United States based solely on

the ground they are infected with HIV,

and they will not be required to undergo

HIV testing as part of the required

medical examination for U.S.

immigration.

DATES: This final rule is effective

January 4, 2010.

Our K-1 NOA2 got processed below the average mark. However, my wife got held up the medical due to the fact they found a spot on her x-ray. She had to undergo a (3) months testing procedure, and then passed/released. In looking back, I wondered if there was any preemptive measure I could have taken prior to the medical. Unfortunately, our medical facility would not take any other doctor’s, hospital, or clinic’s, preceding test results into consideration. Thus, we had to endure every step established by the USCIS medical facilities’ procedures. The medical stage seems to be one that is always under estimated by many.

You would rather have HIV than Hep C. HIV can be suppressed with anti-viral medication and gives you no symptoms, however Hep C destroys your liver even with medications. I think Hep C should be on the list, but it is rather hard to contract it being only blood to blood contact.

Slightly hi-jacking this thread - anyone know if obesity / higher than recommended BMI will cause trouble at the medical (specifically in the UK)?

I don't think being obese will cause you to fail your medical. It's not a communicable disease, although it is seen as a disease, it cannot be wide spread to the public.
