How do I get my pregnancy check-up with OSHC?

OSHCstudents-Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) is a type of health insurance that international students in Australia are required to have while studying in the country. OSHC covers certain medical expenses, including pregnancy-related services. To get a pregnancy check-up with OSHC, you need to follow these steps.

1. Identify your OSHC provider

Your OSHC policy will be provided by an Australian insurance company. It’s essential to start by selecting a healthcare provider or doctor who participates in the OSHC network. You can find a list of approved healthcare providers on your OSHC insurer’s website or by contacting them directly. It’s crucial to choose a provider that offers comprehensive maternity and pregnancy services as part of their coverage.

2. Find an affiliated maternity clinic

Find an affiliated maternity clinic through the link: https://oshcstudents.com.au/find-a-doctor-of-oshc

Once you have identified your OSHC provider, you can locate an affiliated maternity clinic or healthcare facility that specializes in pregnancy-related care. You can typically find information on these affiliated providers on the OSHC website, or you may be directed to a specific website or portal provided by your OSHC insurer. This resource will help you find doctors, clinics, or hospitals that are covered by your OSHC policy for pregnancy services.

3. Make an appointment to see GP doctor

Your next step is to schedule an appointment with a general practitioner (GP) doctor who is part of the OSHC network. Your GP will serve as the initial point of contact for your pregnancy check-up and will guide you through the process. During this appointment, be sure to inform the GP that you are seeking pregnancy-related services.

4. The GP doctor will assist in appointing to the clinic, and maternity hospital to use hospital and delivery services

Your GP doctor will not only assess your general health but will also assist in coordinating your pregnancy care. They will provide referrals to specialists, maternity clinics, or hospitals where you can receive comprehensive pregnancy check-ups and delivery services. The GP will work with you to establish a care plan tailored to your specific needs during your pregnancy.

Pregnancy check-ups are typically scheduled at regular intervals during your pregnancy, and it’s vital to attend these appointments as recommended by your healthcare provider. These check-ups are essential for monitoring the health and development of both you and your baby, ensuring that any potential issues are identified and addressed promptly.

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!
