My son had a brace fitted in UK in Jan, he had an appointment today where I told her we were moving to oz in September. She said she could take out his brace and give him a retainer as when we move they will probably take it off anyway.


Will this be the case? If so, can I get private healthcare to cover this? Or as we are on a PR visa, do we get any help with this like the NHS over here as he is under 16 he hasnt had to pay.

dont think you will get any help with medicare and if you have private cover there are waiting times usualy a year before they will pay anything towards it. My son had it done about 5-6 years ago and it cost $3000 then but we had private cover so only had to pay the gap.
