Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) is a compulsory health insurance plan designed to minimise your health care costs when you study in Australia.
Why do I need OSHC?
It is an Australian government requirement that you purchase Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) for the duration of your student visa. You must purchase your OSHC when you pay your first semester tuition fees.
What does my OSHC cover?
If you need to go to the doctor or to a hospital while you are in Australia, OSHC will cover 85% of the base rate you are required to pay. If doctors charge more than the base rate, you must pay the additional costs.
