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

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 border.gov.au for more information on your student visa.

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

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.
