OSHC for student visa with dependent partner

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

When applying for OSHC for a student visa for the student and a dependent partner do you have to take a couples insurance or can you do two individual policies? Reason for asking is that quotes for a couple over two years is almost $5000 but a single is about $1000. This seems mad.

That doesn't seem right at all. When I got mine it was cheaper for a couple.

(Than two separate that is, not in total).

I'm pretty sure I've read that the OSHC needs to be in the name of the primary student visa holder, so the dependent cannot take out the required cover on their own.

I think you are correct MaggieMay. It's just another insurance company scam charging couples more than two singles. Looks like we are better off getting two visas.

it is crazy! my family (2 adults and 1 child ) quotes for ten thousand a year compared with a single with only less 500$ ? What' s wrong with that policy?

 

Is it that the insurance companies deliberately swallowed international students?
