Health insurance :- ok right help me !! Lol well we hardly go doctors or hospital .. But I have repeat percipietions for thyroxine, free in uk , also my contraception pill ! is there some kind of insurance at a monthy fee to pay all ??
There are areas where the housing costs would be more than you could afford, but to be honest it's fairly obvious which these are from the exceptionally large houses and high rent prices. Check out realestate.com.au for an idea of rental and sale prices in different areas. One thing to watch for is you can rent homes in some areas for reasonable prices but if you then wanted to buy the house prices are much less affordable.
Car rego is a bit like road tax in the UK, but it includes an element of compulsory insurance. I'm not sure what this insurance covers, but it's still a good idea to get fully comp insurance on top. There is no MoT or equivalent here.
There are quite a few threads on here about whether health insurance is worth it or not. I'm still in the undecided camp myself, but we do have it. Perscriptions aren't covered by health insurance though. It is however worth shopping around as some chemists charge more than others for the same drugs. Our health insurance costs us $97.77 a fortnight for hospital and extras cover for 2 adults and 2 kids.
Thanks for your help . All the best x
As a healthcare professional, depending on who you work for, you should qualify for salary sacrificing. This means you can have your rent taken out of your salary prior to tax. Saving you approximately 20%.
