Bupa supports you during your time in Australia

OSHCstudents – Your Bupa health cover doesn’t start and end in hospital. We have a range of partnerships and resources to support you throughout your recovery, so you can get back on your feet as quickly as you can.

Support over the phone

Health advice is only a phone call away for our members. Our Bupa TeleHealth service offers health support for members managing or at risk of chronic conditions such as heart failure, heart disease, diabetes, stroke and lower back pain.

Support for your heart

Heart disease is a complex condition and the decisions around treatment can be confusing. That’s why we’ve partnered with GenesisCare, Australia’s largest private practice of cardiologists. As a Bupa member, you’ll have no out-of-pocket expenses for services from a GenesisCare cardiologist when you’re admitted into hospital.

What is the COACH* program?

Based on over 16 years of research, The COACH Program has been proven to help people with cardiovascular disease meet the recommended National Heart Foundation and National Stroke Foundation targets for specific risk factors, reducing their chances of future complications.

Parent and Baby Wellbeing Program

Having a baby is an exciting time, but it can also be a challenging period of change and adjustment. That’s why we’ve partnered with the Parent-Infant Research Institute (PIRI) at Austin Health, a leading treatment and research centre for parent and infant wellbeing, to bring you an exclusive support service called the Parent and Baby Wellbeing program.

Osteoarthritis Healthy Weight For Life

To help members suffering from osteoarthritis to help stand up to joint pain and get back to living a happier, healthier life, Bupa members have access to a specialised 18-week osteoarthritis management program run by the Healthy Weight For Life team.

Support for chronic conditions

If you suffer from a long-term or chronic health condition, our self-management programs show you how to work with your GP to manage your symptoms and stay on top of it.

Support for mental health

At Bupa we know that mental health is just as important as physical health. To support our members, we’ve made changes to our extras on selected products, to give you wider access to mental health services when you need it. We also have a range of content and guidance available to help support you in the prevention and management of mental health.

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.

Having lived in Australia for 2 years, I’ve been reliant on AHM OSHC to pay for my health care, which supports me for other expenses. Last year, I sent my claim requests for several times and always received the claims within two days. Everything is easy, fast and simple.

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.

My homestay was very comfortable and convenient. My host was really kind. He showed me where to shop, which buses to catch, where the nearest train station is, to get off at which station so that I wouldn’t be taken to another suburb. Travelling was easy since the place was close to public transports. It only took 30 minutes to get to my college, actually I could go anywhere easily!

When told that I was going to live with an Italian family, I was pretty nervous and doubted whether or not they could speak English well as the local people? Yet it was no longer a problem when I saw them. They knew the problems of people who first came to Australia and always tried to help me. I learned so many things about both Australian and Italian culture and enjoyed tasty Italian meals every time. Awesome!
