You are in exactly the same boat as me; my partner applied for his visa at the start of April (2015) but we haven't heard anything either.
From what I can tell, if you submitted online (we did, and it goes through the Washington office as yours would be going through too if you applied off-shore) sometimes you may not even hear from a case officer unless they need more documents or something else from you.
But as far as health checks go, you have to go to specific places (Australian government certified places) to get them but if you happen to be visiting Australia any time soon you can book your health check while you're here. They can fit you in almost the next day and it's possibly a little cheaper too.

Did you guys apply online or paper?

Hi Shmiffy,
Oh wow yeah, almost the exact same situation. We submitted ours online through immi
I've already looked into the clinic that I have to go to and called about prices and all that. As with everything else involved with this visa the medicals are expensive xD Right now I'm debating on whether or not to get the medicals done before hearing from the case officer or not.

If the case officer requires no additional info will we just receive a confirmation email?

I would recommend you get everything up there asap. If they don't have to ask for further information then your car might move faster too. I'm under the impression that when applying online you may not hear back from a co at all, if you have them everything they need they may not contact you till your Visa is granted.
So get everything up there, if you don't have a medium, book one and give them the email for your booking. Then at least you know if you don't hear back it's sort of good news too because they have everything.
If your immi account says "assessment in progress" it means the case has been opened and someone is/will be looking at it.

Awesome! Thanks for the help Shmiffy! I think it's the lack of hearing from them that has me nervous haha! I can't wait to get the medicals done, it's like a 4 hour drive just to get to the clinic! Such a bother lol I take your fiance already gotten theirs done?

He has. He is from. Columbus Ohio, and the closest place for him was across the boarder in Canada. So instead we booked him the appointment when he came to visit me in Australia. Was cheaper by a little and so much faster.
Once you have everything upload the wait becomes easier, since you've done all you can by that point. Just keep loading new documents as time passes.
I give a few copies of emails every month, to show we're in communication often.

Oh updating the communication logs, that's a great idea! The FBI checks were made through a channeller and were submitted a few weeks ago and the local police checks have also been uploaded. The only thing left is the medicals How much did the medicals cost in Oz if you don't mind me asking?

I think it was $340 something? But if it's paid in us dollars then it should be cheaper due to the exchange rate.
What are your locations? I'm guessing your the one in oz since you're online at 2am their time?

I would be careful with getting the medicals done now. Even though it appears as though most PMV applications from the U.S are hearing from CO's around the 5-6 month mark, the website probably has a different timeline. You just want to be careful that there is no risk that your medicals could expire, although I have read that CO are able to extend them in some cases.

We waited until we had a CO contact us requesting the medicals. We had to wait a few weeks for an appointment but at least we know that there is no risk of them expiring. But I guess everyone is different, so you need to go with what you feel comfortable with.
