New age restriction for Bupa standard visitor cover

In light of the ongoing uncertainty around COVID-19, Bupa are placing an age restriction on Standard Visitors Cover.

🎈 From 5 May 2020 Standard Visitors Cover is only available to overseas visitors under 50 years of age.

🎈The new age restriction for Standard Visitors Cover will apply to new customers only (switching from another insurer or new to health insurance) and includes parents of existing Bupa Domestic, OVHC or OSHC customers.

🎈Bupa will continue to allow existing Bupa customers moving to a new visa to join Standard Visitors Cover (e.g. Bupa OSHC or OVHC Working visa customers transferring to an OVHC Non-Working visa).

🎈Both Standard Visitors Cover and Standard 50 Visitors Cover have been removed from the Bupa website, with Standard Visitors Cover to return on 5 May 2020 with the age restriction.

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.
