This should also be helpful for anyone who is scared of the costs involved. Once you call the civil surgeon's office please confirm with them if they will accept your insurance, or call your insurance company and find out if the civil surgeon is an approved provider. If not there are several choices available. Unless, your insurance is like mine where I can go anywhere I want, coast-to-coast.
Called up my insurance company. Adult immunizations are 100% covered and no cost to a patient. Titer test is also a covered benefit but deductible/co-insurance is applied. Insurance company can not provide a cost for the titer test until it is submitted & processed. Weird.

Anyone knows how much titer tests would cost after the insurance discount?

Default Insurance coverage

I maybe talking out of line here but the reason why insurance companies don't cover is because the tests are not for preventive care. These are for immigration purposes. The moment they sign the form they know why its being done and insurance will reject it because of a different code. Just my 2 cents and I maybe wrong here.

Default Please clarify

The Presidents executive action allowing everybody to file 485 after 140 is still on the table? Could the Admins please clarify this.

Yeah this is a problem, and to be honest isn't it 'not acting in good faith' to get such a letter from an employer that you have no intention of joining in the future? And how would you convince USCIS of the above without paystubs or other proof if an RFE comes through - which can lead to danger of I-485 rejection?

Surprised to see IV recommend this move.

Also disappointed that by connecting the dots all I can see at the horizon is some way that USCIS will make everyone current for a month or two, like 2007. That was a bad idea that pushed priority dates back by eons for everyone, including EB3I. It basically a got a bunch of people stuck with EADs and unable to move to significantly different positions, and a bunch of new 'slaves' whose priority dates were significantly in the past.

If this is what IV is advocating for, I suggest it's a bad, shortsighted idea, and instead spend more energy on fixes that can improve the quality of life for all (but might take longer).

And I'm saying this as an IV supporter and donator, with even doing advocacy for HR213 in political offices.

Surprised to see IV recommend this move.
All IV has suggested in terms of using I-140 from a former employer is to get a supporting letter from that employer. At no point is the recommendation to not act in good faith or to game the system. The suggestion - should one choose to act on it - implies that the applicant intends to return to their former employer and that the employer is willing to take them back.

The intention is to join back to the former employer once he/she received the green card.

Since most (or all) of the people are not going to get the green card within 6 months, Is it possible to work on the EAD under AC-21 rule with the new employer after 6 months?

Admin/Pappu, can you answer the above question, please?

Can I file I-485 with my current employer based on previous employer's approved I-140? - Avvo.com

Sure, it may be possible, but I double the USCIS will be so blasť about letting it go without an RFE. To me it sounds like exactly following the letter of the law, but not the spirit. Not that I'm a stickler for the law, but I doubt USCIS would be this amused.

Anyway it's a moot point; what self respecting company would provide this letter when it's clear that the employee left for better waters elsewhere?

At the beginning of this thread, Admin has clearly mentioned that "While things are being worked upon, we want to ensure that you are equipped to take benefit of these fixes on a short notice. We think it is in your best interest to make this a priority and be prepared if/when an opportunity is presented." Take the cues from here and proceed if you want to.
