Health insurance and other exciting things like the Ashes and Springsteen!!

Recommended Posts

I have been monitoring and reading articles on this website for a good few months and it always impresses me the warmth and the length people go to to answers questions and queries.


In short I will be in Melbourne for the Melbourne cup, (October) i have all ashes tickets for both the Sydney and Melbourne test and of course a Bruce Springsteen ticket for next year in Melbourne. I will be travelling on a WHV and have been granted permission to teach in Victoria. Which I am really excited about. When I write out what I have done, I have been busy!!! I intend to get my 3 months of agricultural work done straight away and then go from there.


Right Health insurance.........


Can someone give me advice on this. I am looking for good cover with all the basics covered, plus MRI'S, post therapy treatment like Physio and medication etc. Do i buy it from an English agent like the post office, bank etc in England or do I get involved with an Australian company? Naturally I am quite unsure and a bit nervous.


Many Thanks in advance.

As far as I am aware, the WHV gets you cover via Medicare HOWEVER it doesn't cover dental so you'll need to make sure you have some cover in place for that. http://www.travellers.com.au/Planyourtrip/Medicare/tabid/201/Default.aspx I am unsure as to whether an Australian company would cover you for such a short period due to the waiting periods for benefits to kick in but you could always ask - try contacting http://www.Bupa.com.au and http://www.hcf.com.au
