One policy coverage for all medical expenses

OSHC is mandatory health insurance that includes coverage for visits to the doctor, some hospital treatment, ambulance cover, and limited medicines. There are five approved OSHC insurers that can provide a range of different OSHC products. These range from a basic product that covers only the compulsory minimum services to comprehensive products which cover—in addition to the compulsory minimum services—extra services as specified under the particular policy. Students have to buy insurance before they set foot in Australia. Once in Australia, the student is fully covered against any medical exigency. It provides coverage for international students seeking treatment at a doctor’s office, hospital, or for limited prescription drugs. OSHC is currently offered by 5 major insurers in Australia namely Australian Health Management, BUPA Australia, Medibank Private, Allianz Global Assistance, and nib OSHC. It can be purchased either by your education provider or you can choose your own OSHC approved provider and pay the insurance yourself. Proof of OSHC coverage has to be produced when the student arrives in Australia.
