Dr. Kainkaryam is a designated US Civil Surgeon by USCIS (https://my.uscis.gov/findadoctor).
Our immigration physicals are a two-part process, where the first part is to identify the various needs and complete the exam, and the second part is to follow-up on any tests/needs and complete the paperwork.

Many insurances do not cover immigration physicals or the labs and screening tests that are required. However, we give our patients the choice to have either a bundled package which includes the required labs, or to order your labs and bill it through your insurance. You must choose which package you are getting before the visit prior to the orders being placed.
|Package Options||Adult |
|I-693 Basic Exam Only|
(does not include any labs; any labs required would be billed to you or your insurance by the lab vendor and would not be covered by the practice)
|I-693 Exam and Basic Screening Labs|
(includes gonorrhea, RPR (syphilis), and Quantiferon Tuberculosis Gold Test if applicable, and the lab would not charge you any additional costs for the included lab tests)
Additional Blood Tests
If, based on review of your documents, you need additional bloodwork, and you have insurance, you have two options. You must choose which option you want prior to ordering the tests.
1. Use your insurance to cover the costs of the test (which you may not know until you receive the bill from the lab).
2. Our practice will cover the costs of the tests and you would pay us the fixed rates listed below.
|Additional Blood Tests (if needed)||Cost|

If you need an x-ray, you have two options. You must choose which option you want prior to ordering the tests.
1. Use your insurance to cover the costs of the test (which you may not know until you receive the bill) and go to an x-ray site of your choice.
2. Go to our imaging partner and pay them the cost listed below.
|X-Ray (if needed)||Cost|
