    We went to Medicare office and filled out forms (take passports and proof of address) and were given a temporary paper card which covered us until Medicare card arrived in the post.

    Yes you are.We arrived on Sept 3rd and did medicare on the 4th. On the 6th The sink collapsed in the apartment we were living in and my other half tried to catch it and the metal side cut his fingers.

    we had to get a taxi to the hospital and he had seven stitches.

    They were great at the hospital and he had his stitches out 1 wk later which we had to pay $40 for. The total bill is $85 and medicare are paying the rest.

    Fortunately the hotel are going to pay the bill that we got.

    Wouldn't care he has never been to hospital in the Uk but I reckon he was just trying to get out of the washing up
