Our charge for a Work Permit Medical is $100 KYD*, which is highly competitive and includes the HIV/ VDRL testing. It does not include the cost of the X-ray, which is conducted through one of our partners. Work permit medicals are not covered by insurance.
*Obviously this is a medical and as such it may identify conditions that need follow up or further diagnostics to better evaluate them. Physicians are required to conduct further evaluations or laboratory tests where they think they are relevant for consideration of work permit applications, and obviously they will want to whenever there is an ongoing health implication. These may well form separate consultations or be under different charges but you will be informed prior to incurring any additional costs. Please note that this will be the same within all institutions performing work permit medicals. You can be reassured that Integra will never over-investigate, only recommending further evaluation where it is medically advisable.
