Why is OVHC important
Hospital and Medical treatment can be expensive!
Australia has a public health insurance system, known as Medicare, and a public hospital system. Overseas visitors are generally not eligible for Medicare coverage or free treatment in public hospitals. This means that overseas visitors who need hospital or medical treatment while they are in Australia will have to pay for these services, and the cost can be significant – in most cases hospital treatment will cost more than $1,500 per day.
As a temporary resident, it may be a condition of your visa that you maintain an appropriate level of health cover for the duration of your stay in Australia.
If your Visa is subject to Visa Condition 8501, you must maintain adequate arrangements for health insurance while you are in Australia. Your Visa conditions can be checked on the website of the Australian Government Department of Immigration and Border Protection. Allianz Global Assistance’s OVHC meets the DIBP requirements and will satisfy Visa Condition 8501.
