You can select an approved OSHC provider and pay for the policy yourself. Some education providers might offer to arrange OSHC for you.
If your education provider arranges your OSHC coverage, you will need to know the name of your health insurance provider, the date that your policy starts and finishes and should be aware of the terms and conditions of your policy. If you arrange OSHC coverage yourself you will also need to know the policy number to include in the visa application.
You do not need OSHC if you are:
- a Norwegian student covered by the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme
- Swedish student covered by Kammarkollegiet
- a Belgian student covered under the Reciprocal Health Care Agreement with Australia.
