Welcome to Australia, and affordable overseas visitors cover.
If you’re visiting Australia or (even better) migrating, then we’re guessing overseas visitors health cover is the last thing you want to think about. Why research private health insurance when there’s so much more interesting stuff to look forward to down under, right? That’s why we’ve made organising private health insurance cover as easy and affordable as possible for overseas visitors.

Overseas visitors cover - one less thing to worry about.
When relocating to Australia, you firstly need to ask yourself - are you covered by Medicare, our public health system? And the answer - well, it depends. Residents of some countries enjoy limited Medicare cover, but only for emergency treatment, and only under certain conditions. If you aren’t covered you’ll have to pay for hospital or medical treatment, which can be pricey. For instance, an emergency appendix removal can cost anywhere between $1,200 and $28,000. Ouch!

Visit medicare.gov.au to find out if you’re covered, or health.gov.au for more information about health insurance in Australia.
