    My thanks to all for your comments and advice. I have been researching further and found this useful piece of information, albeit dated 2014 but assuming this may still relavent today.

    Does Medicare cover all surgery.?

    I have read and digested many posts in relation to Medicare ,private health insurance etc but must admit to still being rather confused. My partner and I wil be entering Australia on tourist visas then immeediately applying for Aged Parent (sub class 804) visas. A bridging visa will be issued and Medicare applied for asap under UK- Australia reciprocal agreement. I understand certain treatments eg dental etc are not covered but my question is in respect of any elective surgery which may be needed at a later date resulting from any non pre existing conditions other than accident/emergency which I presume as covered being 'medically necessary.' It seems rather a grey area as what is considered covered by Medicare in respect of elective surgery. Any clarification of whether any additional private medical cover is vital for certain surgeries is required. Thanks in advance. Terence.

    Sub class 804 question

    Thank you Marisa for your reply and advice. I have researched extensively many aspects of the 804 visa but I am sure there will be other questions. The property surcharges are certainly hefty ,your warning appreciated. Melbourne greater area near family is our preferred destination but the prices have rocketed in past two years so other locations must be considered.

    Sub class 804 question

    My partner and I hope to be arriving Australia later this year to join family . Our question for the community is when we arrive on tourist visas ,if questioned on arrival by immigration do we openly declare our intentions to apply for the subclass 804 visa asap ?
