How to calculate OSHC length?

OSHC Start date

Your Overseas Student Health Policy start date should be the same day you arrive in Australia. If you’re unsure of your course start date, please choose a date up to 28 days before your course starts.

OSHC End date

Your Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) must cover the full period of your visa. Your student visa can be granted up to the maximum duration outlined as below:

Duration of Course Ensure OSHC lasts until
10 months or longer, finishing in November to December 15 March the following year
10 months or longer, finishing from January until October An additional two months on top of the Course end date
10 months or less 1 month after your course end date

For example: If your course is from 1 January 2014 to 1 September 2014 (this is under 10 months) then add one month to the course end date.
In this example your OSHC dates would be 1 January 2014 to 1 October 2014.

I trust Allianz Care since it is one of the largest insurance companies in Australia, with the medical centres where I only have to pay for what is left from insurance support. (no need to claim later). Besides, those centres are located at the centre of the city, close to schools. Very convenient, right? Credits to Allianz Care for providing reliable medical centres for health check and treatments.

I’ve been living with homestay family for 2 years. I’m now 19, I can move out but I don’t want to leave my host, who has become my family. It feels like I’ve met my second family. Thanks OSHCstudents for sending me to this homestay!

I realised how important insurance was when I started living in Australia. There I switched to using Allianz Care instead of the previous service. Allianz Care is extraordinarily good in its consulting service and customer care. I’ve learned a lot about Australian health care, also I was consulted with mental issues and how to live a healthy lifestyle. I am very happy now.

Thanks to Allianz Care, every time I claimed my medical receipts it processed much more quickly and easily than I expected. I was initially a bit concerned since Allianz Care is more expensive than other insurance companies, but now I can ensure that it is totally worth the money.
