What is OSHC?:  Medical insurance for students in Australia

OSHC refers to “Overseas Student Health Cover”, compulsory health insurance for all international students in Australia. This insurance, besides being obligatory, is only offered by Australian companies. Hiring the OSHC is part of the requirements to obtain a student visa in Australia, and you can include your partner or family in it. In general, you must hire this insurance for the entire duration of your course until the expiration date of your visa.
In Puravida Study we constantly receive doubts about this insurance. That is why we made a video where our CEO Luis explains in detail what OSHC means, who offers it, how much it costs, frequent cases, and many other data that our students commonly ask. Watch the following video to the end and leave your comment!
