Just an update on my issue. I have Ankylosing spondylitis and am on Humira. My medicals have passed. I am awaiting other issues. The new cut off allow for most biologics now. So that's good for all those who have been waiting.
Congratulations. How long did it take to get your medical passed?

By "medical report" are you referring to GCMS documents (medical)?
Its order in the same way, when you order GCMS you need to select Medical in the list of documents you are selecting. If you want to understand the process of ordering that feel free to DM me

I referred the new instructions in this link,

https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/corporate/publications-manuals/operational-bulletins-manuals/standard-requirements/medical-requirements/refusals-inadmissibility/excessive-demand-on-health-social-services.html

My understanding is that once IME is completed and cmau adjudicates medical results based on IRPR subsection R1, the case is forwarded to the designated officers to apply new criteria.

Not sure if I am over-reading or misinterpreting this.

"Once an IME is completed, officers delegated to overcome an excessive demand inadmissibility finding, through the consideration and application of the public policy and under the authority of section A25.2, may grant an exemption from paragraph A38(1)(c) (medical inadmissibility due to excessive demand on health services and on social services) to the foreign national"
Very accurate. Your application eventually confirmed your prediction. I am in your shoes right now. IME officer has appended M5 to my case now with CMAU. Yet status reads: Ready to be assessed. Last updated on May 31, 2019. Can you please confirm when your file was transferred to CMAU and whether there was a "Ready to be assessed" on your note after appending an M5.
