Understand more about OSHC

🍄OSHC is a requirement of your student visa.
You’ll need to maintain adequate health insurance for the entire duration of your stay while you’re on the student visa.

🍄Who’s eligible for OSHC?
👉You can get OSHC if you’re an overseas student in Australia with a student visa, or if you’re applying for a 500 student visa and currently on a bridging visa.
👉Your spouse, de facto, child or step-child may also be eligible for OSHC.
👉If you have graduated from university and are on a 482 Temporary Skill Shortage (TSS) Visa (which replaces the Temporary Work (Skilled) 457 visa) or 485 Temporary Graduate visa, you may require Overseas Visitors Health Cover (OVHC). Some 600 subclass visa holders (Visitor visa) also require OVHC.

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.
