Healthcare in Australia

Before settling in Australia, it is important to understand how the Australian healthcare system works and what it means for you. Australia has a two-tiered health care system, with both public and private care available.

Medicare is Australia’s public healthcare system. It provides free or subsidised health cover for certain healthcare costs to all Australian citizens and permanent residents. It is Australia’s universal health care system and gives Australians a wonderful health safety net.

Australia has a wide choice of both public and private hospitals with a world class health care system and health professionals.

On selected temporary visas, the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) may require you to purchase and maintain adequate health insurance for the duration of your stay in Australia. There are many private health insurance providers in Australia, such as Bupa, Medibank, HCF, and NIB.
