Default EOI Child's Health section - Anorexia

Hi,
I couldn't find a similar post or my searching skills failed.
I was filling out the EOI and I noticed a question:
"Is xxx receiving or has received, any treatment for any psychiatric condition or developmental disorder?"
My daughter (14) was recently (April 2016) under Section 2 of the Mental Health Act for anorexia. She came off that in May and is currently in an eating disorders place under parental consent. She is progressing well and we believe we will see her out before December.... of course I am probably being unrealistic, but I have to have something to hope for.
Of course at the same time I have a job offer waiting for me in New Zealand (made in March before all this kicked off).... which my daughter is super keen that we go, not a triggering event at all as far as I am aware... in fact not going may be a bigger trigger, lol.
I am currently in negotiation to see if I can delay the start until December or January or atleast contract from the UK.
In the meantime I'm trying to get all my ducks in a row, applying for Skilled Migrant Visa seemed the way to go for the family.
So regardless of whether it is wise to do the move at all, does anyone know if this will be an issue for the application process?

Many thanks.

no one on here will be able to give you the answer to that, it all comes down to what the medical accessor decides on the information you provide, so it is really a case by case scenario.
The only thing you can do is provide information and documentation from the health professionals helping your daughter at the moment and see how it goes.

I do hope you daughter keeps on improving and goes from strength to strength.

Thank you. I was just wondering if anyone had had a similar experience and any pointers.

Many thanks.
Yes. It will be an issue. The application will be referred to a medical assessor.

When you place your paperwork you will need to ensure that it is presented in the best possible light. That means that you unemotionally illustrate to New Zealand Immigration that your daughter and the condition is unlikely to pose significant monetary burden on the NZ health service.

For that you are best placed to get a consultants report . THat reports really needs to show she has recovered from her MH issue and is considered stable.

Here are a couple of quotes from the New Zealand Operations Manual. You can find a link to this on the NZIS website.

First
A4.10.1 Medical conditions deemed to impose significant costs and/or demands on New Zealand's health and/or education services

There follows a list which includes....
  • Major psychiatric illness and/or addiction including any psychiatric condition that has required hospitalisation and/or where significant support is required

Then further along it talks about costs.

A4.10.2 Assessment of whether an applicant for a residence class visa is unlikely to impose significant costs on New Zealand's health services

The requirement that an applicant for a residence class visa must be unlikely to impose significant costs on New Zealand's health services is not met if, in the opinion of an Immigration New Zealand medical assessor, there is a relatively high probability that the applicant's medical condition or group of conditions will require health services costing in excess of NZ$41,000.

Note: Assessment will be in terms of current costs with no inflation adjustment.
In the case of acute medical conditions, the medical assessor will provide an opinion on whether there is a relatively high probability that the condition or group of conditions will require health services costing in excess of NZ$41,000 within a period of five years from the date the assessment against health requirements is made.
In the case of chronic recurring medical conditions, the medical assessor will provide an opinion on whether, over the predicted course of the condition or group of conditions, there is a relatively high probability that the condition or group of conditions will require health services costing in excess of NZ$41,000.
The following factors have no bearing on whether an applicant is unlikely to impose significant costs on health services:
The ability of a person or organisation to pay for health services, pharmaceuticals, or residential care which may be required.
The ability of an applicant to gain access to the private health system.
The applicant’s possession of health insurance.
The capacity of family, friends, or a charitable organisation to provide care for an applicant.
As she was sectioned & the condition is a difficult one, you may face an uphill battle . I would suggest you talk with an immigration lawyer about the % rate of success.

Lane Neave have a good rep. as does Peter Croxson

If you do think to chat to an Immy consultant, please be very careful who you pick. Some are not really very good at doing more than the basics. You need one that specialises in med referrals.

To find licenses advisors

Thank you so much. I will follow up on the leads you posted.
What a pain, but one I understand from NZ immigration's point of view. Just a pain for us....darn!
