Overseas Student Health Cover
The Department of Home Affairs requires almost all student visa applicants to have OSHC. Your OSHC must be supplied by an Australian insurer, and the insurer must have an agreement with the Australian Government to offer OSHC. Health insurance that isn’t approved by the Australian Department of Health will not meet the OSHC
criteria for getting a student visa.
Only applicants for or holders of a student visa are eligible for OSHC.
Overseas student health coverage ranges from $609 – $3,438. OSHC does not always include dental services. Speak directly with your OSHC provider to find out if dental coverage is available.
