I have hospital and extras cover with Mutual Community and after a bad fall this week, they actually waived my 2 month initial wait period, a couple of weeks early. I pay $60 a month just for myself, for young singles saver. My local hospital is not in their network, but I haven't heard good things about that hospital (Modbury) anyway;)

I thought I heard somewhere that temp visa holders are only entitled to apply for certain insurance policies...is this true?
