Whether you’re an international student, a tourist, or on a business meet-up, getting yourself secured with reliable health insurance is a must. KEF will link you to some of the high-tier insurers to ensure that you are fully covered at all times.
Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)
Students that are undertaking higher education in Australia must have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC). OSHC covers doctor appointments, ambulances on emergency, prescription medicine, and other hospital costs. Different insurers provide different health coverage; we will make sure to pair you with the one that best fits you.
Benefits of OSHC:
Doctor visits, hospital & out-of-hospital medical services
Emergency ambulance services
100% of MBS fee for any in-patient services
Public and private shared wards
Prescription medicine coverage
Some prosthetic devices
As a student, you need to be in your prime health condition most of the time. However, unforeseen health circumstances could hinder studies and work as well. Having proper health coverage will ensure an unexpected injury or illness won’t affect your learning potential while in Australia.
Overseas Visitor Health Cover (OVHC)
Anyone travelling to Australia for work or any other purpose must have appropriate health insurance covering themselves throughout their stay in the country. Kangaroo Education will help you connect with the best health insurers for your Overseas Visitor Health Cover (OVHC) that covers all your travel insurance requirements.
Explore all visa categories that an OVHC covers:
