Default Suggestions for switching eb3 to eb2

Hi,
I-485 filed in july 2007. I-140 cleared in 2005.
We filed for GC in 2003 (eb3) in spite of my husband having two advanced degrees (M.Tech and Ph.d) but he is not working in the same field of ph.d. His company randomly filed in eb3 for all the employees.
But now my husband is diagnosed with chronic disease. We are thinking if we switch to eb2 since he is eligible to do that, atleast he would get some medical benefits for the treatment.
How do we proceed with this? Do we have to file labor again?
Any suggestions would be really appreciated.

how medical treatment is related to EB2? All you need is a good insurance.

My husband thinks if he loses his job he would get unemployment and medicaid benefits if we are permanent residents.
Now his job is fine, his insurance is going on good.
But the question is when he loses his job.
Thats why he is worried.

Default He will have to file labor again

He will have to file labor again.

Few things to note:
It does not matter if he is PhD or not, what matters is that the job for which his company will be applying his Labor justifies a Masters or PhD. If he qualifies, then yes, go ahead and file a new labor.
New labor is not as fast to get approved as was earlier. It is taking from anywhere 12-14 months now a days to get it approved. It is only after labor approval that you can port.
