I'm so down right now...House please forgive my typo error
Please i need sincere clarification and response
Two years (2017) ago my wife travel to the STATE with an F1 visa, but when she got there she realized she was 2 month pregnant tho she was menstruating and all. Anyway she got registered in the school and became the best in her department even with the pregnancy and all school fees payment was duly paid.
In between she registered for Insurance and medicare as a student through the school to deliver our baby,doing this period she has to chill out a semester so as to have the baby as such she has a semester left but her VISA will expired next week.
Anyway i advise her to come back to Nigeria so as to renew her VISA then go back to finish the last semester and make the family proud. She schedule her interview and eventually got the white paper after enough drilling and all but the VO requested for the medical invoice which she replied she's not with the invoice. She was then told to mail it over to there office at ISOLO.
Since there was no payment made as the insurance covered for the payment we sent a mail to the hospital from Nigeria and they provided the medical invoice but stated it was all covered by ALAMEDA medical and we submitted same at DHL, to my surprise today when i went to DHL for the passport i saw a blue paper. sincerely i almost POO on my body, i read through and realised she has been denied. Sincerely i need advise as am blank right now. I advise her to come over to renew her VISA in Nigeria while she insist i should allow her finish her MSC programme before. Sincerely i'm so sad and sick right now.
Please house what can be done, we got another detailed invoice from the hospital today with the amount the insurance company paid for the medicare. I dont know if another VISA fee should be paid and she should go for another interview or is there a way we can go pay the medical fee and then reschedule another interview as i just want her to finish her MSC and come back home. Please note we paid all school fees totaling over 35000$
I'm so sad and down right now...I just need advise please house

Unfortunate for you. The embassy doesn’t like any non citizen taking Medicare whether on f1 visa or any other type. You however seem to have a genuine case and before making any hospital payment, I’ll say you probably engage a lawyer for the best way forward
|Re: Give Birth In USA: Cost And Procedures Part 6 by MamaOO: 6:01pm On Jun 26|
Didn’t her school offer medical insurance to international students? Why did she use Medicaid? If my memory serves me right, Alameda Medical is one of California’s Managed Care Plans (MCPs) funded by the CA State Government (aka Medicaid)
|Re: Give Birth In USA: Cost And Procedures Part 6 by Beautyaddy: 6:14pm On Jun 26|
The highlighted part was the biggest mistake you offered to your wife to do.
You wife is not entitled to any US government benefits(Medicaid or Medicare) even if she has a US baby.
The insurance that your wife signed up for through her school should have covered all the medical expenses that your wife incurred. They should not have resulted into some of it being paid by US taxpayer...the US government really frowns on that.
Hmmm, this is a very tough situation to predict and what next steps to approach it
|Re: Give Birth In USA: Cost And Procedures Part 6 by cutelass: 7:52pm On Jun 26|
Your wife and by extension you are in a precarious situation and I sympathize with you cos clearly you acted out of ignorance. I have a question, the visa that is set to expire next week was it cancelled?
If no...get her on the next available plane to go and finish that remaining semester.
The only way I see that decision changing in this trump era is if you repay Medicare. I dont know whether Medicare is same as Medicaid cos I heard to repay Medicaid is a Herculean task
|Re: Give Birth In USA: Cost And Procedures Part 6 by TripleKMama: 8:52pm On Jun 26|
Very unfortunate. But again, I think the poster dem are quite rich. Coming back to renew American Visa wey never expire. Who does that?
Like someone suggested, kindly engage a lawyer and all the best.
|Re: Give Birth In USA: Cost And Procedures Part 6 by kasope(f): 9:41pm On Jun 26|
I actually renewed my visa successfully in January 2019 after childbirth in December 2017.
|Re: Give Birth In USA: Cost And Procedures Part 6 by Tarry(m): 10:13pm On Jun 26|
Sorry about this situation, it is a really big mistake to have asked her to come back to renew visa, as long as she is in status over there she has not need to renew visa unless she wants to travel out of the US and then it is always advised that you renew your visa before leaving the US to avoid this kind of situation.
International students insurance in the US normally cover pre exiting condition which include pregnancy and that is what should cover the bill, let your wife talk with her school insurance provider on the possibility of taking up the bill and reimbursing medicare.
Another problem was telling the vo you did not come with the medical invoice when you had non. You can reapply and clearly explain the situation especially the international students insurance that clearly cover such bill

For all those asking, this has been answered already. Visa on arrival for newborns was stopped at the end of May.
The official price for an ETC is $150 according to the Consulate's website. Of course, you cannot trust anything the government is involved with and as usual, there are agents all around involved in racketeering.
They asked for a passport photograph and a photocopy of the birth certificate. You also need a consent letter signed by both parents and notarised (you can do this at a bank or post office), and copies of both parents' Nigerian passports, and then you fill a form.
