OSHC and OVHC

OVHC

OVHC, Overseas Visitor Health Cover is insurance that is designed to cover the medical expenses of temporary visitors to Australia during their stay in the country. As the foreigners are not eligible for Australian public health cover, they should get a private health cover before applying for an Australian visitor visa.

Your OVHC should meet the temporary visa health insurance requirements set by the Australian Government for foreign visitors. Your OVHC should cover, minimum-

  • public hospitals costs (intensive care, emergency service, labour wards, medications, admission charge)
  • surgically implanted prostheses
  • pharmaceutical drugs
  • ambulance service fees

OSHC

OSHC, Overseas Student Health Cover, is a type of health insurance for international students in Australia. It helps international students to cover their medical expenses while studying in Australia. These expenses include a visit to a general physician or other hospital charges, ambulance service, or purchasing prescription medicine.  Your OSHC could partly or fully cover these expenses.

OSHC is obligatory for obtaining a student visa for Australia, as international students are not entitled to Australian public health services reserved for their citizens. The students must have an OSHC for the total duration of their studies.
