Reciprocal Medical Agreements With Australia

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mark Baker @ 2:54 pm

Belgians need a valid Belgian passport, their Belgian health insurance card and their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) with the initials BE to register with Medicare. You are entitled to the health insurance mentioned above until the expiry date indicated on your visa, your CEV card or your Belgian health insurance card, depending on the previous date. This is why Australian international visitors must purchase health insurance prior to their arrival, unless their country has a mutual health agreement with Australia. Both travel insurance and the health protection of foreign visitors (OVHC) can contribute to the cost of medical care in Australia. Australia has a mutual health agreement with the UK, which means that UK residents are able to get some health services free of charge while visiting Australia. Irish visitors must stay more than 6 months in Ireland before their visit to Australia and need a valid Irish passport or a valid European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) valid with the initials IE if you are not Irish. You must bring your papers to the local branch of the Montenegro health fund (Fond za zdravstveno osiguranje – FZZO) to obtain a certificate that allows you to seek treatment in public medical facilities in Montenegro. A list of medical facilities in Montenegro is available on the GOV.UK website. The Australian government has signed RHCas with the following countries: Italians need a valid Italian passport and a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) valid with the initials IT, an Italian health insurance card or a legal declaration. They are covered by Medicare for a period of 6 months from the date of arrival in Australia or until the expiry of their visa, CEA or Italian health insurance card, depending on the previous date. To register with Medicare, visitors to the Netherlands need a valid Dutch passport, either their European health insurance card with the initials NL or proof of insurance valid under the Dutch health insurance system.

They need a valid Finnish passport and, if they are not Finnish citizens, they need a health insurance card issued by the Finnish Social Security Institute or a valid European health insurance card with the initials FI or 2 residence documents. If you plan to live or work in one of the countries of mutual agreement, the information contained in the links below may not apply. Please note that this information is correct at the time of writing, but may change. You can check the current status of any mutual health agreement for which you are allowed to check here on the Australian government website. The CEC is not applicable outside the European Economic Area and Switzerland. Be sure to mention the mutual health agreement with the UK and have all the necessary evidence documents when you have access to health care. More information about mutual agreement on public health can be found on this site or by email [email protected]. You can also call Medicare directly on 0061 2 9895 3333. New Zealand and Australia have a mutual health agreement, which means that New Zealand citizens travelling to Australia are entitled to limited subsidized health services for the necessary medical care during a visit to Australia.
