We recently received our 176 visa and are making plans to move after Christmas. I was wondering if anyone on here is or knows someone who is taking an anti-coagulant such as Warfarin. I'm on this for life as I have a mechanical heart valve. Not a major drama but it means I need to have a regular 'INR' test - a simple finger-prick of blood on a hand-held machine (usually in and out of the medical centre in 5 mins).
Most GPs in the UK seem to have an INR clinic - can anyone confirm if it is as straight-forward in Oz as I currently enjoy in the UK? Also, will this be covered by Medicare?
