Yes. I filled the survey form and to be very honest i dont feel it has anything to do with processing. In fact, i did mentioned in the survey that i am able to travel at the earliest. I can since people around my AOR are getting re med request but mine file is untouched.Yes, I filled the survey form but it was mentioned that it's voluntary and will have no impact on the file processing. Unsure if that had an impact.
I don't think you should go for upfront medical because they will ask you if and when they need it. When asked, they provide 30 days to complete that, and the file status changes from 'submitted' to 'your action required'. They share IMM 1017E letter for the panel physician. Don't worry, they will ask for it from you.
@Amiz did you fill the survey form?
