Do I need health insurance on a 601 visa?
The Reciprocal Health Care Agreement (RHCA)
Australia has a Reciprocal Health Care Agreement (RHCA) with the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland, New Zealand, Sweden, The Netherlands, Finland, Belgium, Norway, Slovenia, Malta and Italy. If you're from one of these countries, you can access the public health system Medicare.
However, Medicare doesn't include everything. For instance, it doesn't cover ambulance fees or out of hospital services like dental, optical and physio – but health insurance can.
