OVHC and Interim Medicare

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am currently under SC485 visa and paying for OVHC to fulfil the 8501 visa condition (Maintain adequate health insurance). Recently, I lodged SC190 visa and received interim (blue) Medicare card.

My question is Does the interim Medicare can fulfil the 8501 visa condition?

I have been asking around about this i.e. go to immigraion office, call immigration hotline, ask the insurance provider... but seems nobody know how it exactly how it works. What I found is here: https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/visa-1/485-?modal=/Visas/supporting/Pages/485/Acceptable-evidence-of-health-cover.aspx

---------------------------

Acceptable evidence of health cover

  • When you apply for your visa, you must either: 
  • produce a valid Medicare card or receipt of enrolment with Medicare, or
  • provide evidence that you and anyone included in your application have arranged health insurance in Australia.

Cheers,

Phoenix
