A reciprocal health care agreement is an agreement between two countries to cover certain health care costs. If your country has a reciprocal health care agreement with Australia, you will be covered for certain health care costs while you’re in Australia, while Australians visiting your country will enjoy the same benefits. The United Kingdom is one of the many countries that has an agreement with Australia. For more information and to find out if you qualify, visit the Services of Australia website.
Yes. Even if you have a pre-existing condition, you will be able to buy health insurance for your stay in Australia. You will just have to have served a 12-month waiting period before you can claim on any pre-existing conditions.
It depends on whether you need to be admitted to hospital. With HBF health cover, if you need to be admitted to hospital for treatment, there is a 12-month waiting period for pregnancy and birth and pre-existing conditions, and 2 months for all other services. However, if you just need outpatient medical treatment (for example, consultations with a General Practitioner or emergency ward care) there is no waiting period.
