Help you find the most affordable OSHC plan

OSHC (Overseas Students Health Cover) assists international students to meet the costs of medical and hospital care while studying in Australia. You need to purchase the right OSHC plan to submit study visa (subclass 500).

There are 5 government-approved OSHC providers including Allianz Global Assistance, Medibank, AHM, NIB, BUPA. It is not easy for you to understand fully and have a choice of OSHC.

How to do? can assist you to quote, compare and decide which OSHC plan is suitable for budget and your needs.

You can quote and compare OSHC plans very easy –

You probably know how important it is to be protected from illnesses and injuries. Hospitals and medical treatments in Australia can be very expensive for overseas students as they are not covered under the Australian Government’s ‘Medicare’ Public Health Insurance System. If you have OSHC, the medical, surgical and mental health needs are covered.

Your OSHC must start from the date the student arrives to Australia until the student leaves the country or moves to a non-student visa sub class. If you hold student visa subclass 500, you are allowed to stay in Australia to full-time in a recognised educational institution for up to 5 years. Go to for more information on your student visa.

It’s great that you are looking to compare OSHC plans on  before purchasing it.  Our system will then assist you to quote OSHC, issue invoice, certificate accordingly.

Why choose Allianz Care Australia?

Studying  in Australia promises to be a life-changing experience, but homesickness is not the only problem you might face. Health cover from Allianz Care Australia protects you from excessive costs for accident or illness, whilst you make the most of your opportunity to learn and explore.

I trust Allianz 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 for providing reliable medical centres for health check and treatments.

I’ve been living homestay for 2 years. I’m now 19, I can to 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 instead of the previous service. Allianz 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 expending. 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, every time I claimed my medial receipts it processed much more quickly and easily than I expected. I was initially a bit concerned since Allianz 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 to anywhere easily!

When told that I was going to live with an Italian family, I was pretty nervous and doubted whether they could speak good English 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!
