Overseas Student Health Care (OSHC)
The Overseas Student Health Care (OSHC) is closely aligned to the Medicare system which is used by Australian citizens and residents. The coverage is in place for health concerns, including COVID-19.
In the event a student was to visit a Hospital's Emergency Department with a suspected (or subsequently confirmed) case of COVID-19, then coverage would likely be confirmed for this treatment as it was sought under an emergency situation, which is 100% of the Medical Benefits Scheme Fee.
