The PPD Test requires two visits (48 hours apart) and both visits are included in this price.

Statcare is open 7 days a week. The advantage is that you can start your PPD test on a Thursday or a Friday and not have to worry about a closed medical practice on the weekend to get your PPD reading done

Others will send you somewhere else to do a Chest X-Ray if your TB test is positive or if you need IGRA Quantiferon Gold Test or other blood tests done.

Statcare is also a full-service Travel Clinic. All vaccines for Immigration Medical Exam are kept on-site if you need any shots.

Please note that any blood tests, vaccines and Chest X-Rays that you may need are not included in the $129 fee.

You have to pay for blood tests, vaccines and Chest X-Rays out of pocket regardless of where you get them done esp. since you CANNOT bill your health insurance plan for ANY immigration related paperwork.

What paperwork and USCIS Forms do I need to bring?
Bring your passport. Bring your Vaccination records or blood tests that prove vaccination history. Bring at least $129 with you. If you need vaccines or blood tests, bring spare cash as well since these are not included. We will give you the most updated USCIS Form-I693. You may print this form and bring it with you. Please do not sign it until you see our USCIS Civil Surgeon.


What does the US Immigration Medical Exam entail? What need to be done for completing my Form I-693 for an adjustment of status to a green card?

For our USCIS Certified Civil Surgeon to complete the green card physical exam (Form I-693) and clear you for a Green Card application you need the following done:

1. An immigration physical examination or a medical check-up (included in the price)

2. A PPD test to screen for TB (two visits needed and both are included in the price)

3. A blood test called RPR for Syphilis (not included in the price - the lab will bill you approx. $9 for it and you can pay them directly.)

4. One visit with the Civil Surgeon and completion of Form I-693 by the USCIS Civil Surgeon (included in the price)

5. Any vaccinations that you may be missing from your records (not included in the price)

.

Items 1, 2 and 4 are included in our $129 Immigration Medical Exam. This is the lowest fee in the tri-state area. Everyone else charges twice as much. We do not offer any further discounts. Please do not call our office to request such discounts.


Do I have to go to a green card doctor recommended by my Immigration Attorney?
Statcare gets all its business by word of mouth and Attorney Referrals. The price is the same for everyone. You are free to go where you want for an immigration health check-up. You can choose any USCIS Physician. Our immigration doctors are USCIS approved Civil Surgeons. Statcare has been doing Immigration physicals for several years. Your regular medical doctor cannot complete these forms, so make sure you go to a Civil Surgeon certified by the USCIS. We do not work with any particular immigration law firm. We do not offer commissions or discounts for personal or professional referrals. Our patients come from Manhattan (NYC), Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx, Staten Island, upstate NY, New Jersey (NJ) and Connecticut (CT).


I am still shopping for an immigration doctor in my area. You do not have an office here but can you tell me what questions I should ask when seeking a USCIS Civil Surgeon for a green card medical exam?

When shopping for a green card medical exam price or a good USCIS Civil Surgeon, ask questions first so you know what you are getting into.

Your Immigration health check-up prices are lowest in NYC. How can your immigration doctors do this immigration exam at such a cheap price?
Doing an immigration medical exam is only one of the things our office does. Statcare does several Immigration Physical Exams a day. It is also not all that we do. We provide immigration medical examinations as a service since we were immigrants too! We understand your challenges because we went through the same process and paid a lot for it as well. We do more immigration physicals than anyone in the tri-state area and are able to pass on the savings to you. Do check out all the services we provide!


Do you have other locations in New York City (Manhattan) and can we do my Immigration application via mail?
We have one location in Astoria, Queens; walking distance from the N and Q subway station for Ditmars Blvd. We have another location in Hicksville, close to the LIRR Station. Our patients come from all over New York (NY State) including New York City (NYC), New Jersey (NJ) and Connecticut (CT). We do not have other branches or locations in Manhattan (NYC) or other states. You do need to be in our office for our immigration doctor to perform the USCIS immigration medical examination and finish Form I-693.


I can get a vaccine certificate from my country. Now, can you charge me less?
Please note that any misrepresentation on your application will disqualify you from a US citizenship, regardless of how many years have passed since your citizenship status. The USCIS vaccine requirements for immigration are for your protection. Do not try to avoid them as you will be discovered or the person who knows your weakness will exploit you sooner or later. We have been in this business for a very long time. We see a lot of applications that get rejected because of improper filling by other places. We have also heard a lot of crazy stories regarding same day PPD’s and form-filling. When we give you the vaccines, we will record the lot number and show you the expiration dates on the vaccines. When we give you a PPD test, it is actually a PPD, and not something else. When we give you a vaccine, it is a vaccine. We only do what is right. For this reason we do not take over immigration medical exams where someone else has left off. We cannot certify the work if it is not done by us. If you are shopping for a bargain price, please do not call our staff. They cannot help you in this.


So, I need more than one visit for getting a green card medical exam?
Yes. The least number of visits is two visits. An immigration medical examination involves a few steps. The green card medical visit to any USCIS certified civil surgeon takes two visits at least because the PPD Test has to be read in 48-72 hours. That time cannot be compressed unless you want to pay for a Quantiferon Gold Test or IGRA blood test for TB, which is an expensive test.


Can you tell me what I can expect at the first and second visits?
Sure. Bring your passport, vaccine records and blood test results if you have any. At your first visit we will give you the USCIS I-693 form for US Immigration medical examination for the green card. If you want to see what the I-693 form looks like, click here. You can print and bring this form I-693 (Medical Examination of Aliens Seeking Adjustment of Status) with you, but you do not have to. Do not fill the form as the US immigration officials want it filled without mistakes. This can cause a delay in getting a green card. On your first visit you will receive a medical check-up and the PPD Skin Test. Blood will be drawn for the RPR test for Syphilis. If you have received all the vaccines but do not have proof of the vaccination, we can perform tests on your blood for proving this. This blood test is not included in the $129 fee. If you need vaccines, we will give them to you on the first day of your visit or you can get a list of places to go to as well. If you choose us, you will have to pay for these vaccines separately. Hepatitis B MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis) Varicella (Chicken Pox) Influenza (Flu vaccine) Our prices for vaccines for a green card medical exam are extremely competitive. There are no surprises when you come to our office. What you need to do for the second visit: When you come back for your second visit in 48-72 hours, we will read the PPD result. If PPD test is negative, your immigration form will be completed. If the PPD test is positive, then you will need a Chest X-Ray. We do Digital Chest X-Rays in our office using the latest technology and have it read by a Radiologist as well. The charge for a Chest XRay is $75 and you have to pay for it separately. If the Chest X-Ray is abnormal, you will need other things done before you can be medically cleared for immigration and green card. All reports come back in 2 business days.


You will see our USCIS approved Civil Surgeon who will complete your paperwork as well.


How do I get to your office from NYC (Manhattan) for the immigration medical exam?
Take the N and Q subway train to Ditmars Blvd in Astoria if you are coming to our Queens office. Walk a few short blocks from there. For our Long Island office, take the LIRR from Penn Station to Hicksville. Please visit the MTA's LIRR website to see the latest train schedules.


What are the new changes for immigration doctor's visits since 2009?
An HIV test is not required any more. The Quantiferon Gold Test or IGRA blood test for TB can be substituted for a PPD test. An IGRA or Quantiferon Gold Test is an expensive test.
