Medical Insurance for Foreigners in Australia.

It is VITAL that foreigners on temporary visas, who are not eligible for Medicare in Australia, maintain suitable medical insurance while in Australia.

A news headline today is showing:

Ineligible for Medicare and unable to return to home, a temporary visa holder is facing a $500,000 medical bill.

This is a foreigner, in Australia on a working visa, who did not hold suitable insurance for the medical event.

The Migration Council Australia is aware of other temporary visa holders who have been hit with expensive out-of-pocket costs due to not having insurance due to being unable to afford it.
