How much does an immigration physical exam cost?
The new fee for a physical exam for immigration purposes is currently approximately $275 per person. This fee includes the required testing and screenings. However, if you require vaccinations from the mandatory list, the cost may increase as these are not reflected in the base fee. Unfortunately, most health insurance and travel insurance plans do not cover the fee necessary to complete an immigration physical. If you have questions about the fee for an immigration exam at Boca Medical Care and accepted methods of payment, please call us at (561) 250-0770 to speak with a dedicated staff member about your options. Of course, you can also check with your health insurance provider if you have one to see whether such an exam might be covered by your exact plan.
What is an immigration medical exam?
An immigration medical exam is a necessary physical evaluation for adults and children who are seeking to immigrate to the United States of America. An immigration medical exam is not a comprehensive physical, but instead is used to asses your overall health and ensure you have received important vaccinations that will protect you and your new community. During your immigration exam, your doctor will discuss your health history with you, perform a physical examination of your body, order a chest x-ray, and perform a blood test. Your physical examination will assess the function and health of your heart, lungs, ears, nose, and throat, as well as other parts of your body including your external genitalia. Once the results of your exam are compiled and certified, you will receive a copy for you to submit with your immigration application.
What if my vaccination records are in another language?
There are several vaccinations that are required for immigration to the United States. If you have previously received these immunizations, you should bring your records with you, even if they are in another language. This may save you from having to receive vaccinations during your appointment at Boca Medical Center, assuming the intervals and ages of administration are similar to the recommendations for citizens of the U.S. Required vaccinations include those for measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR), tetanus, meningococcal and pneumococcal disease, rotavirus, diphtheria, varicella, influenza, pertussis, polio, haemophilus influenzae type B, and hepatitis A and B. If you have questions about the required immunization schedule, your doctor can help you understand whether follow-up visits are required once you have received vaccines at our clinic. We proudly offer a comprehensive range of vaccinations and immunizations, so you can quickly and easily access the vaccines you need when you schedule your immigration physical exam with us.
