I have just visited the gov.reciprical health care page where it says. Quote
visitors to Australia (and it says 'visitor on my medical card) are covered for the duration of their stay IF
1 Free treatment as an in patient at a public hospital- have had
2. Subsidised medicine under the PBS scheme - this I have not received
3. Medicare benefits for out of hospital medical treatment provided by doctors - yes have received
I will 'phone medicare on Monday to try to clarify this - I find it difficult to visit an office as I am not allowed to drive because of the epilepsy.
Meantime maybe Sharon, Karen or yourself would like to look at this page to see what you make of it. I just googled reciprical health cover.
