Australian Health System
Australia’s health care system is divided into a public and private system. Before you visit Australia it is important that you understand how the Australian health care system works.
As an overseas visitor you may not be eligible to free or subsidised services under Australia’s public system. We’ve put together some information to help you better understand how the Australian health care system works, what it means for you and how Overseas Visitors Cover can help cover the cost of health care when you’re here.
There is also information on Australia’s major visas and meeting their health insurance requirements.
