Is vaccination covered by OSHC?

OSHCstudents – OSHC (Overseas Student Health Cover) normally covers most of your medical costs however, you may be out of pocket for items such as vaccinations, pathology testing, and other services like physio, psychology, or podiatry. You may receive some rebate but it’s best to check with your OSHC provider about your coverage.
The coverage provided by OSHC can vary depending on the insurance provider and the specific policy you have. OSHC generally covers the following:
– Hospital expenses: This includes coverage for hospital accommodation and treatment when you are admitted to a hospital.
– Medical expenses: OSHC usually covers medical services provided by doctors and specialists (GP), including outpatient services.
– Prescription medications: The cost of prescription medications can also be partially covered by OSHC.
– Emergency ambulance services: OSHC policies often include coverage for emergency ambulance services.
Vaccinations may or may not be covered by your OSHC policy, depending on the specific terms and conditions of your insurance provider and policy. It’s essential to review your policy documentation or contact your OSHC provider to confirm whether vaccinations are included in your coverage.
Some diseases listed in the government-funded program will be covered. Before getting any vaccinations, you need to call to check with your doctor or OSHC providers for advice.
If you are international students, foreigners arriving in Australia, or Australian citizens traveling abroad looking for OSHC, OVHC, or travel insurance, please contact Annalink team at email: info@oshcstudents.com and our partners for further information and assistance.

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.
