The company that will be employing me are currently sorting out my 457 visa, and have emailed requesting my health insurance details (which i have just found out you need to do beforehand with the 457!). They obviously want me to sort it all out asap to progress the visa, but i dont want to rush into it and make the wrong decision!
Reading the forums and the privatehealth.gov.au, i have picked up some answers but not all of them! i.e. that the Ambulance is done direct through the SA website.
On a 457 visa does it have to be private or can it be medicare? (as it seems the medicare is something you do on arrival, and i need it done beforehand?!)
I have had a few quotes and are unsure as to what level of cover to go for. Do people just go for hospital cover or the combined to include general treatment. Its a difficult thing to choose as you don't want to scrimp, but you don't want to unneccesarily pay over the odds! What are people roughly paying a month for a couple?
Any help would be much appreciated on this one, as i have to make a very quick decision!
