If you have a student visa, you’ll have health insurance. Find out all you need to know to access health services.
Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) covers all student visa holders for:
- visits to the doctor
- hospital fees
- prescription medications
- emergency ambulance.
You would have applied for OSHC when you organised your visa. Medibank is the private health insurer used by most students at RMIT.
How do I get my card?
First, you will need to activate your card. To do this, you’ll need your OSHC policy certificate, which you should find in your email. Just search ‘Medibank’ in your email account. You’ll also need your passport.
Once you have activated your card, you will receive it in the mail to your Australian postal address.
A representative from Medibank is at RMIT Training every Wednesday from 9am-5pm in the Level 3 Student Success Hub. You can see them for any questions about your OHSC or to make a claim.
How do I make a claim?
When you visit a doctor or hospital and pay a fee, you need to keep the receipt.
To make a claim, bring the receipt to the Medibank representative at the Student Success Hub on Level 3. They will arrange for the money to be refunded to you.
