      I have a question regarding additional medical information being needed. I had to do some addition medical follow up with my doctor. My medical status is "referred to a specialist" in CASS. I was interested in finding out from anyone that had to do addition medical follow up, What was the time frame that it took until you heard about the results of your follow up info? I just picture my information sitting on desk piled up to the ceiling waiting to be reviewed...haha Thanks!
      I am going on two months with no answer. Three weeks ago I emailed to make sure the requested follow-up documentation from my Dr. was received, they said it was and would take about 2 weeks to hear anything back, well it has been three weeks now. I will just continue to wait.

        I called the Medical unit the other day and they said to give it 2 to 4 more weeks to clear. It has already been 2 months since I sent the additional info in. I just want a yes or no at this point! grrrrrr Good luck to you!

        • JBrass quits CBP due to Salary...

          It's all about catching bad guys, U.S. and foreign. If you're not with CBP on this, then you're simply not with and should join the local PD and settle those ever crazy domestic disputes.

              Medical Clearance

              I was contacted recently by a nurse from MHC, stating that additional medical info. is needed. Basically, my blood pressure has been elevated since I gave birth (about four months ago). They are requesting documentation that my blood pressure is controlled. So I am now on medication for this. Unfortunately, even with the meds. is it still slightly over 140/90. Will this prevent me from being medically cleared?
              I disclosed that I have HBP on my medical also. When I tested at the physical I was 130/80 which is far below the 140 level. However I am on medication for mine as well, mine is caused mostly by white coat syndrome/stress.

              I also received a letter that I could not be medically cleared. I made a Dr Appt and my PCP cleared me saying that the rigors of this job would not have any affect on my issue, furthermore my wifes mom is a nurse and she had been taking reading when she would come over and mine fell under 140 everytime. Somtimes when I used to go to the Dr it would be up around 150 or higher!

              They cleared me after 2 weeks with this proper documentation. Hope all goes well for you. You need to have your BP under control once at FLETC as well, you have be under 140 for the shooting activities.

                  • So, do most people move to their port before the EOD date, or do they find short-term housing until after the academy?

                        The weather is hot and the forcast is for more HOT. It has been around 90 but I hear August is when it really warms up.

                          • Has anyone ever heard of a BI being completed without the applicant ever being contacted by anyone? I have a friend that has been waiting to be called by the BI and get it underway. So I checked his info on CASS for him and it says it is "Completed". Seemed odd to me seeing how mine took two F2F meetings and employers met with etc etc. anyone?

                              The first and most probable thing is that he was granted an "interim" clearence based on a clean fingure print check and criminal history check. His background will continue while he is in FLETC and will clear sometime down the road. I have heard of people having background problems and getting booted while they were here, so if your buddy is squeaky clean, then he has nothing to worry about.

                              The other is that his background is so smooth that the BI felt he did not need a face to face. I have a former BI in my class right now and he said he did that on rare occasions.

                              I'm pretty sure he recieved an interim.

                              • Beyond the CBP officers who process people at ports of entry, what other types of positions are available? Is there anything more tactical or law enforcement type?

                                How long does it take to obtain that type of position once you complete FLETC?

                                I saw in the CBP Air/Marine video they had an individual on a Blackhawk having a position as what looked like a door gunner. Is this a CBPO position or another position?
