    as soon as u apply for 887 u receive the acknowledgement  letter in email take the printout along with your passport and all family members and u will get Medicare right away

    I took mine the same way 

    @qld  In the medicare form,  there is Question  36 - Does this person require a Lifetime Health Cover letter?  (For more information, see page 1 of this form)   Should we say YES or NO. I already have private health insurance and will continue to use that

    Medicare is only available for after bridging visa come into effect. if you current visa still in effect. the bridging visa will not come into efeect. so you are not eligible for Medicare

    @June I have just called medicare and we are eligible for medicare once we get the bridging visa and we have to take the acknowledgment of 887 as well as bridging visa along with the passport to the nearest medicare office. Both wife and main applicant needs to be present in the office


  6. Quick question guys:- I am filling out the 887 online application form and came through below question. In the application its only me(primary applicant) and my wife.  I have already provided the details of my wife in the online application.   Do I have to add my wife details in the Accompanying members of your family unit section ? My wife is already included in the application.  Its just me and my wife in the application.

    What do I have to add in the Non-accompanying members of your family unit section ? Only my parents and my sibling details or my wifes parents and siblings details as well ??

    Hello everyone, anybody applied for vfs police clearance recently? How long it takes? Thanks 

    @Skaur I applied from VFS melbourne for PCC  in person on 22nd oct but still no update. The Processing time varies on case to case basis.Average processing time is between 5 working days to 45 working days. I am also waiting for it. Usually it takes 2 weeks

    Just to add that medicare card will not cover your ambulance cover in case required; you will need private insurance for ambulance cover.

    @Dee I have already done 1 year couple family subscription with VIC ambulance. So i think its best to unsubscribe from the private health insurance after I get a medicare card. What are your thoughts ??

    Take your passport and copy of your 887 bridging Visa to the nearest Centrelink office.  You do not need an appointment. 

    @MZH Thanks. Is it the same medicare card which the Permenent residents get or it is something different. Does it have similar benefits to what PR holders get ?  Is it necessary to have private health insurance after we get medicare card ? Just curious to know.

    Listen mate, this is a voluntary forum, and is very helpful. It just seems that you are frustrated when you do not get an immediate answer to your queries, this is not an on-demand service. We can only give opinions. Some of us had to pay for advice through agents so you have no right to make demands. Get off your high horse and if you don't like what you see then take some $ out of your pocket and pay an agent.

    @TakeItOnTheChin Mate it looks like u are more frustrated because of waiting times. Listen mate I neither demanded for help nor i am begging anyone to help. If anyone can help with what he has experieced that is always appreciated. I just gave my opinion as to what everyone is here for and  I beleive everyone is here to share their experiences. Redirecting to agent anyone can do that

    @Akie, with the number of questions and queries that you are making, I suggest you go through an agent. Understand that it is costly but at the end it will save your life and time. Please don't be disrespected but checking your quotes for the last 4 weeks, it seems you have raised queries for each question of the every form form.

     

    Happy to help you, but as some friend mentioned here case by case is different and you might not get accurate information.

    @Doman OK so what is this forum actually for? Can you please clarify? I understand everyone's situation is different like some have kids, some are single. Is this forum just to monitor who got the grant and what is the timeline only and then congratulate that person who got the grant and ask him then who is your case officer? Is that what this forum is for? Well I believe this forum is for helping each other with their experiences rather than pointing fingers on each other and referring to agent which is rude. If I know something which I have experience about I definitely share that in the forum and I have been an active member of this forum for quite a while now. So no hard feelings. If you feel offended by answering to anyone's queries then God help you 

    Cheers
