Date 15.03.2016 Moving to another country can be overwhelming, especially if the healthcare system is different to the one you’re used to at home. If you’re thinking about migrating to Australia, join the 3 million people in Australia who have taken out health insurance with Bupa to ensure you’re covered for any eventuality. We spoke to Bupa to find out what they offer.

Why take out cover through Bupa Australia?

If you are making plans to work in Australia, getting an appropriate level of health insurance may be a requirement of your visa. Aside from that, it’ always a good idea to be prepared for the unexpected. When you are covered by Bupa you can enjoy your time in Australia with greater peace of mind.

What is the advantage of getting insurance before I arrive in Australia?

Our team in the UK is here to answer any questions you have about the Australian Healthcare and private medical cover before you leave. If you need proof of cover for your visa application, Bupa can issue your health insurance visa letter immediately.

How do I know if I need health insurance?

We can help you to understand whether your visa requires you to have private health insurance and make it easier for you to understand the Australian healthcare system.

Private health insurance through Bupa offers you an affordable way to keep healthy and treatment at a time and place to suit you. We can help you to choose the right level of cover for you and your family before you make the move to Australia.

What happens if I want to move to another country in a few years? Do I have to keep paying? Will there be any benefits in continuing the policy?

If you leave Australia you can cancel your cover at any time and we would work with you to help you to continue your cover with Bupa. We are a global company with 22 million members across 190 countries.
