All International students and their family members must have adequate health insurance for their entire length of their stay in Australia. The applicant and all the family members concerned must be covered by an eligible health insurance provider’s Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC).
OSHC must be obtained by international students undertaking formal studies in Australia and their dependents (for example, spouses and children under the age of 18). This includes cover for doctor visits, some hospital treatment, coverage for ambulances and limited pharmaceuticals (medicines). A range of various OSHC products can be provided by OSHC insurers. These may range from basic products covering only compulsory minimum services to comprehensive products covering, in addition to compulsory services, compulsory minimum services.
The essence of the health cover depends on how many applicants are included in the application for a visa. A single health cover is required for a single applicant, while either couple insurance or family insurance is required for a couple or family members.
