887 Visa - What's the update?

Recommended Posts

Hi All, 

I really need you help, I am in Adelaide on 489 and it's just been a month. We are planning to extend our family but I am unsure of any health insurance which gives no waiting period or small waiting period for pregnancy cover's.

Can any one please help me or guide me the best way to go through this.

Bupa or most insurance have 1 year waiting period and I am really not looking to push it to another year due to certain health conditions and having a baby without insurance is again very expensive ( is what I heard till now).

I don't know what to do from here, any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

Please please add your thoughts:)

Thank you!

It will cost you around $14000. 

Better to go your country for this.

Hi,

You could admit to govt; hospital (i.e. Women and Children) as private patient for delivery and you could pay by chargers by itinstallment basis according to your financial status. Go and discuss with them. Rates may be around $2600 per day plus other chargers.

Insurances very tricky and many hidden chargers. Because they only pay us medicare component only and more than 60% we have to pay by your pocket.

Going back to your country is final option and calculate both side and you decide.

Hi Happy and Lucky,

You can call health insurance companies and find out the waiting periods. But what I would like to give my input on is thinking beyond the delivery cost, prepare for the worse. Pregnancy can turn out to be nightmare if there were any complications before or after the delivery (right now you are not even considering any of that). I had Bupa from first day of my 489, but I still waited until I filed the 887 and got medicare.  Yes, you will have your concerns but waiting here or having delivery overseas may help you.

Hopefully this helps.

Your CO contact or request isn't noted on the tracker. Do you have access to edit the tracker and fill that in?

Sunny,

Same here they requested for AFP as mine and partner ones old year old. Also requested for partner functional English language ability even though I provided her school and intermediate certificate conducted in English. After this request I also uploaded more than two years Australian work experience in order to have more evidence for this. 

 How did you lodge complain?

I have snap shot to what I think it is related. However the snap shot is not for the complete text.
