Name Discrepancy at Medical Appointment

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My name is listed differently in the New US e-medical system used for medical results.

 

My health card and passport are in my original last name but my name is listed with my spouses last name in this new e-medical system associated with my medical package. 

 

When I attended my medical appointment in Toronto on Dec 28th the nurse was very confused by my ID (Passport) and told me there was a problem. When the doctor came he explained the United States government recently implemented an e-medical system in which they (Montreal or NVC) input the data. The doctor ensured me it was a simple mix up and that this has been happening occasionally since the launch of this system, six weeks ago. The doctor told me he will email the consulate to clear up the discrepancy and that I will receive and email from Montreal confirming recognization of the name discrepancy. 

 

My question is, has anyone else had this problem or heard about this? I am wondering if there is anything I can do to avoid another delay. My interview date is February 1st and I’ve already had so many bumps and hiccups upon this long emotional immigration journey I can’t imagine experiencing another delay. 

 

I will update my post when/if I receive an email, just looking for advice and/or experiences with this problem. 

 

Thanks

Very surprised no one else has been told their name doesn't match at the medical exam. Nervous this could cause more problems... Did some digging and saw my lawyer listed my 'family name' as my husbands last name then put (nee actual last name) in perenthisis. I guess this is why the consulate has my name differently then my ID. 

 

Been in 14 days since my medical exam and still no package or email from the consulate.  Frustrating.
