Common Questions:

What will the examination cost?
The basic examination fee quoted by the receptionists covers the skin tests for tuberculosis, blood tests for syphilis, laboratory fee, and physical examination. Chest x-ray and vaccine costs are additional and available on request. Vaccine and test costs vary from time to time and are reflected in the fees. While rarely required, we reserve the right to change fees if needed.
What if I have a condition found on exam? Am I excluded from applying?
Depending on the abnormality, you may need treatment started or completed prior to final completion of all forms. You may be referred to the Health Department. For some chronic medical conditions a determination of severity (mild, moderate, or severe), recovery or rehabilitation potential (minimal, partial, full) and need for further care (none, low, or high) is required by INS. Your regular doctor may be asked to assist in this determination.

Steps in the process:

Registration:

Information needs to be accurate and clear as this information will be used to fill out INS documents.

Physical Examination:

Some brief questions will be asked relating to past medical history and symptoms. If you do not speak English well, we can help you in your own language. You will be examined with special attention to evidence of infectious or mental diseases.

Lab Tests:

Lab tests will include a test for RPR, a test for syphilis.

Skin Tests:

A skin test will be placed on your forearm and must be read in 48-72 hours, which means you must return to the clinic in 2-3 days for it to be read. If it is positive or you have a history of positive test in the past, a chest x-ray will be taken to ensure that the disease is not active.

Vaccines:

The INS requires that you be current with all the vaccines for your given age group (see Table on back of brochure). A legible written document of your previous vaccines is required. As per INS instructions, “Self reported doses of vaccine without written documentation are not acceptable”. Many applicants do not have documents of previous vaccines and will require vaccination. For most adults this requires 2 or 3 vaccines, 1) diphtheria/tetanus, 2) measles / mumps / rubella, and 3) varicella (chicken pox). There are additional charges for these vaccines check our rate fees in accordance to the type of vaccines required. Your vaccine history will be recorded on “Supplemental Form to I-693”. A copy will be placed in a sealed envelope and a copy given to you for your records.

INS Forms:

After all the information is gathered, the quadruplicate Form I-693 can be completed. This will be signed by you and placed in a sealed envelope along with the vaccine form (Supplemental Form to I-693) . This envelope is to remain sealed until reviewed by an INS officer.
