Navigating Health Cover for Your Australian Journey

Embarking on your educational or professional journey in Australia requires careful consideration of health insurance options. At HBD Services, we offer comprehensive assistance in arranging Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) and Overseas Visitor Health Cover (OVHC) to ensure you have the necessary coverage throughout your stay. Here’s how we can assist you in detail

Understanding OSHC

Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) is a mandatory requirement for international students studying in Australia. It provides coverage for various medical expenses, including hospital admissions, doctor consultations, prescription medications, and emergency ambulance services. We guide you through the intricacies of OSHC, explaining the coverage limits, waiting periods, and exclusions to ensure you have a clear understanding of your policy.

Choosing the Right Provider

Navigating the array of OSHC providers can be overwhelming. Our experienced team helps you select the most suitable provider and plan based on your individual needs, preferences, and budget constraints. We work with leading providers such as Bupa, AHM Health Insurance, Allianz Global Assistance, Nib, and Medibank, ensuring you receive the best value for your investment.

Comprehensive Coverage Analysis

We conduct a thorough analysis of OSHC policies offered by various providers, elucidating all clauses, benefits, inclusions, and exclusions. Our goal is to empower you with comprehensive knowledge of your coverage, enabling you to make informed decisions regarding your healthcare needs in Australia.

Admission Counselling & Course Selection
Procuring OVHC

For international visitors and workers in Australia, Overseas Visitor Health Cover (OVHC) is essential to meet visa requirements and safeguard against unexpected medical expenses. We provide detailed guidance on selecting the appropriate OVHC plan, considering factors such as visa subclass, duration of stay, and specific healthcare needs.

Flexibility and Convenience

Unlike OSHC, which typically requires prepayment for the entire duration of your stay, OVHC offers flexibility with monthly payment options. We explain the various policy types available under OVHC, including single, couple, and family cover, and help you choose the most suitable option based on your circumstances.

Transitioning from OSHC to OVHC

If you’re transitioning from OSHC to OVHC, such as when applying for a Temporary Graduate visa (subclass 485) or switching visa categories, we facilitate a seamless transition to ensure uninterrupted coverage. Our team assists with the necessary documentation and ensures compliance with visa requirements.

Tailored Solutions for Your Needs

Whether you’re a student, visitor, or worker, we understand that healthcare needs vary. That’s why we offer personalized assistance tailored to your specific requirements and circumstances. Our goal is to provide you with peace of mind and confidence in your healthcare coverage while in Australia.
