Yes, be a citizen from the list of countries where no health check is required.

Why would you want to avoid the health check? If you are healthy, then you've got no problem anyway, and if you are not healthy, does it not make sense that the gov't here would not want you to spread whatever it is that you have?

Any idea where one can find the aforementioned list of countries where no health check is required?

Let me put it to you this way: Everything I have ever seen about medical examinations suggests that every type of long term immigrant must get a medical exam. Yet, when I receive my approval in principle letter for my Entrepass, a form was included which asked me to certify that I did not have AIDS, HIV, or TB. That was it. No medical exam required.

Maybe it's my country (US) and my status (older white guy) combined. I don't know.
