Hi All again,
As everyone says when we are on bridging visa. We can avail the medicare benefit.
Can anyone explain me in details that what type of benefits we can avail?
As i don't know anything about it?
If someone is availing the benefits then what are they?
I am having private insurance. Can i stop that or continue till grant of 887.....
hello nidhi, you get full medicare benefits the same as australian citizen. whatever they get, you'll get that. and you can stop paying private health insurance if you want to save money. for full details of what u can and cannot claim, visit medicare website. cheers.
i just wanna ask, do you need to upload/submit police clearance overseas? even if you didn't go out of the country since your arrival? Does case officer required both police clearance in australia and overseas?
thank you in advance Rjane....have a nice weekend!
Hey guys,I have applied for 887 & got bridging visa grant notice which says bridging visa is not in effect untill my current visa exist.Medicare people said we can't avail medicare benefits untill current visa 487 exist.does someone have this issue.
Hi ricky, following info is from Medicare website..
Eligibility for Medicare Card
Everyone who lives in Australia—excluding Norfolk Island residents—is eligible for a Medicare card if they:
hold Australian citizenship
hold New Zealand citizenship (documentation required)
have been issued with a permanent visa
have applied for a permanent visa (excludes an application for a parent visa—other requirements apply. Call us for more information).
it means you are eligible for medicare entitlement once you applied for permanent visa irrespective of which visa is in operation. Ask them to talk their supervisor . U know hundreds of people avail medicare benefit once they applied pr.
