Cancer Survivor and Immigration Visa

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My parents got their I-130 approved. The only issue is they have to undertake medical examination and my dad is a cancer survivor. He had a lung cancer, had his left lung removed followed by chemotherapy. His chemo finished in September this year and he is doing perfect. Had his CT scan a week or so ago and he is absolutely normal thankfully.

I am concerned that after his medical and xrays etc. would his chances of getting immigration visa to US become lower or what. I am really tense! Plz advise

Having cancer, or being a cancer survivor, is no hinderance to getting a visa.

However- will he need ongoing treatment/ monitoring/ medicine, esp with only having one lung? If so, the embassy may ask you for proof you can support that financially, ie not just the usual I-864, but also health insurance coverage.

Details in what way?

Essentially, we have seen many cases on here where the petitioner of elderly beneficiaries or those with medical issues were asked to prove they could pay for health coverage/ potential medical bills, which as I am sure you know, can quickly mount up in the USA, because greencard holders are not elligible for medicare for some time.

You are eligible as an LPR to have health insurance and to receive subsidies from the ACA. You are not eligible to obtain Medicaid for five years. The parents will not qualify for Medicare as they have not earned 40 qualifying credits in the US towards Medicare.

What you might be asked to prove is that you can afford to provide payment for the health insurance and any deductibles it has.
