Quick question

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, this is our situation.  We are doing aos from k1.  We sent our aos package 2 weeks ago.  We got a text that it was received and the money was drawn from our bank account.  Here is where the rubber meets the road:  my wife is pregnant.  But she cannot get a simple state id because we did not file for a simple state id within the 60 days time frame (who knew?).   We need a state id to be seen by a doctor.  What can we do?  


Thank you so much, everyone!

You... don't need a state ID to be seen. Imagine how people who are just visiting US wouldn't be able to go see a doctor or go to the hospital because they don't have a State ID?

 

I imagine they require a "photo ID" and I assume your wife has her passport.

They told us that we need a state id with a picture on it.  I am so lost!


Thank you so much, everyone!

I’m doing AOS from K1 and I’ve seen a doctor and I regularly go to chiro and acupuncture. All we needed was our insurance info which I am on my husbands.

Not true. I use to work in an OBGYN. We accepted many forms of ID including foreign passports/foreign Driver License. Try to go to a different provider or ask to see a different front desk person.

Did you ask if they accepted any other forms of ID? During my AOS phase I would often be asked for a state ID which I didn't have, but my usual reply would be to offer them my foreign passport plus my marriage certificate to prove my name change, and I never had any problems. When they ask for a state ID they usually just mean "an ID with a photo from an official source", like a passport, greencard, EAD...

They would not accept the foreign passport which I agree you all it is completely strange...was there a change in the law recently?


Thank you so much, everyone!

To my knowledge, there is no law.......I would find another doctor.

How are you paying for the Dr? It could be related to them wanting state ID. Many low cost or reduced cost providers require you to show proof of being a resident of that area as well as legal status. 

We are paying the dr with my insurance from my work.  


Thank you so much, everyone!

If she has proof of insurance, i.e., an insurance card in her name, plus valid passport, you should be fine.  Ask to see a supervisor, office manager, etc., or call your insurance company, they should be able to help you.
