Australia health insurance

If you are on temporary visa, you will have to get private health cover.
Here is the list of some of the private health insurance providers in Australia

  1. Bupa
  2. NIB
  3. CUA
  4. QCHF
  5. Navy Health

Not all health insurance providers will provide insurance to temporary visa holders. Bupa and NIB are very popular providers among immigrants. If you are PR holder or citizen, private health insurance is optional as you are entitled for a medicare card. With medicare card, you can access free health services in Australia. I would recommend that you go to bulk billing doctors if you have got PR visa. When you see Bulk billing doctors, you do not have to pay any money out of pocket as all costs are covered by medicare card. All costs related to pregnancy are covered by government hospitals if you have a PR visa. In Brisbane, Mater hospital and RBWH hospital are 2 big government hospitals.
