What is Overseas Student Health Cover?

Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) is an Australian government-mandated health insurance programme for international students studying in Australia. It is a type of insurance that provides overseas students with coverage based on the Australian Medicare system. Students can make arrangements with their educational institution to pay for their OSHC. Even if their educational school provides a specific suggestion because they have signed a preferred provider agreement with a particular insurer, students can still choose their own OSHC provider.
