What is Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)?

Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) is a health insurance policy for international students studying in Australia. It covers you for medical and hospital expenses while you are in Australia.

You are required to have OSHC for the duration of your student visa. You can apply for OSHC through Study Globe or through a health insurance provider of your choice.

Who Needs OSHC?

There are a number of reasons why you might need Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC). Maybe you’re coming to study in Australia on a student visa, or maybe you’re already here on another type of visa but have decided to study. Either way, if you don’t have health insurance covering your medical and hospital care, you’ll need to buy OSHC. OSHC is not just about meeting the requirements of a student visa. Even if you already have health insurance, it’s important to check that it meets the requirements of your student visa. Your health insurance must cover you for the following:

  • Medical and Hospital Treatment
  • Prescription medicines
  • Ambulance services

What Does OSHC Cover?

There are a number of things that are covered under Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC). This includes medical treatment, hospitalization, and evacuation. It is important to remember that OSHC does not cover pre-existing medical conditions, so it is important to get travel insurance that does cover pre-existing conditions.

Some of the things that are typically covered under OSHC include:

-Medical treatment: This can include doctors visits, surgery, and prescription medication.

-Hospitalization: If you need to be hospitalized for any reason, your OSHC will cover the cost of your stay.

-Evacuation: If you need to be evacuated back to your home country due to a medical emergency, your OSHC will cover the cost of your transportation.

How Much Does OSHC Cost?

Depending on the kind of coverage required, OSHC fees can vary.

  • For a year of singles coverage, the minimum cover is as little as AUD $478 (INR 35,905)
  • For couples, it costs $2,600 (INR 1,95,302)
  • For a year of family coverage, it costs $4,200 (INR 3,15,488).

You can either purchase your OSHC online through the website of the OSHC provider, or your educational institution can arrange it for you.
