To obtain a student visa, you must provide evidence that you have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) for the entire duration of your study in Australia. OSHC helps you cover your medical expenses.

Organising health cover

When you receive your offer to study at the University of Tasmania, you will be given the option of us arranging Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) for you through Medibank Private. Alternatively, you can choose one of the other five Australian health insurance companies to provide you with OSHC.

Overseas insurance companies are unable to cover the Australian Medicare system. You may be exempt from OSHC if you are from Norway, Sweden or Belgium.

Oversea Student Health Cover

OSHC policies assist to cover the cost of hospital and medical treatment. Benefits are also paid for ambulance services. 

The minimum requirements of a OSHC policy are set out in the OSHC Deed. The Department of Health also provides Explanatory Guidelines for the Deed and a One-Page Fact Sheet about what is included under the Deed and how OSHC works. For further information, check with your OSHC insurer.

OSHC does not pay for general treatment (ancillary, or extras cover) such as dental, optical or physiotherapy. If you require cover for these treatments, you may take Extras OSHC provided by an OSHC provider or general treatment cover with any Australian private health insurer. You can also choose to supplement OSHC with other insurance such as international travel insurance.
