Alan Collett posted a topic in Visa ChatI thought some would be interested to know that I have spoken with Medicare Eligibility this morning, and am advised that: - subclass 475 visaholders from the UK are eligible for Medicare under the Reciprocal Health Care Agreement (RHCA) between the UK and Australia - this (in essence) allows for the reimbursement under Medicare of treatment that is "medically necessary" (including attendance at doctors and medicines) - 475 visaholders can obtain a Medicare card; this is a slightly different colour to the standard Medicare card, and will have the word "Reciprocal" on it - there is no entitlement to exemption from paying the Medicare Levy on Australian assessable income due to an ability to access Medicare - it is recommended that private health care is obtained to supplement Medicare - there is less of a choice of private health care providers for those accessing Medicare under the RHCA: interested persons should feel able to send me a PM or an email so I can provide further details - once the application for permanent residency has been lodged individuals can obtain full Medicare cover: you do not have to await permanent residency visa grant before accessing full Medicare Best regards.
