HOW MANY VISAS ARE USED BY HEALTHCARE?

Rating: 3 votes, 3.67 average.

by Chris Musillo


Answer: Not many.



The DOL just has published its Factsheet: H-1B Temporary Visa Program - Selected Statistics, FY 2012 Year-To-Date and the paucity of Healthcarepetitions is startling. The IT community uses the vast majority of H-1Bs. Eight of the Top 10 occupations are IT jobs. All ten of the largest H-1B employers are IT -related companies. So how many H-1Bs are used by PhysicalTherapists, Occupational Therapists and other healthcare occupations?  Unfortunately the DOL does not expand beyond their Top 10 lists.



The Permanent Residency data is a bit more forthcoming. At six percent of the overall total, "Healthcare Practitioners & Technical" was the fifth greatest occupational classification in terms of approved Labor Certifications. Six percent was 2,100 approved Labor Certifications and includes Registered Nurses, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists and about one hundred other jobs. These numbers still pale in comparison to "Computer/Math," which makes up 54% (18,800) of all approved Labor Certifications.

    If HR3012 passes, the situation will become much worse, as healthcare immigration will nearly grind to a halt.

    If your program does not offer Visa card access, be sure to let your administrator know you would like the added convenience of a card next year. If you have a High Deductible Health Plan you can pick the HSA that is right for you.
